2019 Special Appeal The IDEA Lab: Innovation, Design, Engineering, and Art

2019 Special Appeal The IDEA Lab: Innovation, Design, Engineering, and Art

With your help, we will transform the former middle school lounge into a hub of scientific inquiry and creative learning.

Opening in fall 2019, the IDEA Lab will feature an open concept and flexible design that inspires collaboration with state-of-the art tools and equipment. With separate but visible classrooms and a large central workspace, there will be room to create, execute, fail, learn, and try again. The space will feature fixed workstations for 3D printers, a bank of high performance desktop computers for virtual reality and game design, and an area for robotics projects. The IDEA Lab will be available to all teachers seeking to add an engineering component to their lesson plans, making it a valuable resource for every student on campus.

This vision for the future of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)  learning at Solebury School will require an investment in equipment, as well as modification to the existing space. Please consider supporting our 2019 Special Appeal and help us bring this transformative project to fruition!

What Is a Special Appeal?
During the live auction, we seek donations to fund a specific program or project. Last spring, the Special Appeal raised funding for a new lighting system for The Barn Theater, which was installed last summer. The appeal also launched our Home and School Above & Beyond Endowed Award for Faculty and Staff, now awarded every June at the close of school.

If you attend the auction, please donate during our Special Appeal, which will be featured during the live auction. If you’re not able to attend, you can make your gift here!
