Welcome to the CECFC iNNOlab!

The iNNOlab is a brand new 6,000 square-foot makerspace designed to provide hands-on, creative ways for students to design, experiment and invent as they engage in the fields of STEAM. The lab will be used to help students learn critical 21st century skills in these fields while exploring their own interests through hands on projects, community service work, various competitions, and several workshops and classes that will be offered throughout the school year. The makerspace will also serve as a business incubator, giving students a spot to brainstorm ideas and use the resources of the lab to help jumpstart their own business or launch a new idea. We are also offering a new Certified Apprenticeship Training program through the lab that will let our students gain the skills necessary to work as electricians, plumbers and carpenters. See the links below for information on classes, competitions, projects and more!

We have a survey for students to take to gauge interest on the sort of projects they would like to work on in the iNNOlab. Please fill out the iNNOlab survey here.
Below are important iNNOlab forms, a waiver and two applications to working on projects in the iNNOlab.
Please print and fill out the forms below and give them to Mr. Turbert or Ms. Brown prior to working in our makerspace.


Woodworking Certification Workshop: Students who wish to become certified to use our woodshop equipment are advised to attend this certification event on Wednesday, September 27 from 3-5p. Mr. Turbert will demonstrate safe procedures when using the equipment and train students to do the same. This workshop is capped at 10 students, so sign up today using this link.


Fusion 360 Workshop: This workshop takes place on Wednesday, October 4 from 3-5p and will cover the basics of using Fusion 360 to design your own 3D object. 3D modeling is an important step in designing products, parts, and structures, among other things. Fusion 360 is also compatible with our 3D printing technology. There are 15 seats available and sign up is located at the iNNOlab.
