Take a closer look at the Mobile Innovation Lab - Innovation Bus

The new Mobile Innovation Lab, a project of the BCPS Office of Innovative Learning Projects, was officially launched at a ceremony on Dec. 1 at Shady Spring Elementary School. The Mobile Innovation Lab is a mobile classroom and makerspace in which students can engage in hands-on learning experiences including coding, programming, robotics, and circuitry. The Lab features multiple workstations and indoor and outdoor presentation screens and audio.

Workcarts can be used in the Lab, outside (under the Lab’s retractable awning), or taken into school buildings. Equipment in the Lab includes 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, CNC router, mini-drones, Legos, and robotics and electrical components. The Lab will rotate to elementary schools throughout Baltimore County, staying at each one for a weeklong residency, beginning with its time at Shady Spring Elementary. At each school, students from Kindergarten through Grade 5 will participate in grade-specific activities. The Lab also will be available, upon request, to participate in school and community events.
