Bryan Innovation Lab

A new way and a new place to learn tomorrow’s skills.

Inspiring a new generation of innovators.

Will Renner '14

The Bryan Innovation Lab has given me a chance to learn in a more hands-on environment. Last year I took Biomedical Design with Mrs. Akesson and learned more than any text book could have tried to describe.

The Bryan Innovation Lab has become a catalyst for collaboration and for discovering new ways of learning that reinforce problem solving and encourage students to engage with the world around them.

Balancing self-awareness with the needs of others helps create better thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers. All students have access to the Bryan Lab, working on interdisciplinary projects such as RAMPS, the Growing Leaders Club, and the Robotics team. Programs often merge academics with the professional world through visiting speakers and presenters.
