The Ulmer Family Light Lab

This groundbreaking space designed specifically for children in Nursery to Grade five opened on October 21, 2016. A cutting-edge facility, it is equipped with four themed Maker studios: Natural Sciences, Media/Computing, Fabrication, and Design. As Principal Kelly Bird remarked at the Ulmer Family Light Lab ribbon-cutting, "Friends, with these spaces and these tools, there is no limit to the effect you can have on this world."
