iWonder Innovation Lab
The joy that iWonder at Lipscomb Academy brings me is immeasurable. I strive to create an environment where students feel empowered to be the drivers of their own learning; the students at LA have rose to that occasion. They are creative designers that collaborate, reflect and ask questions. I can't wait to continue learning alongside the young makers here in iWonder.

Students explore, discover, create, and collaborate inside the iWonder Innovation Lab! Located on both campus, the iWonder Innovation lab allows a creative space for our learners to practice the design process and solve problems. It looks different for every teacher and class that enters in ... but that is the great part. They are learning their classroom curriculum in a new tangible way.
