The Bourn Idea Lab is our school's maker lab and digital fabrication studio, where girls (and teachers!) come to tinker, build, and prototype. We have a laser cutter, a 3D printer, sewing machine, programmable microcontrollers, vacuum former, vinyl cutter, desktop CNC mill, and assorted hand tools. Oh, and lots and lots of cardboard and other prototyping materials, of course.
We are also the home of Castilleja's robotics programs, including our FIRST Robotics team, Team 1700 Gatorbotics, and our FIRST Lego League teams. We are a member of the FabLab@School network, a project of Professor Paulo Blikstein's Transformative Learning Technologies Lab at Stanford University.
Come make with us! The Bourn Idea Lab is open on Fridays until 4:30pm during the school year. All members of the Castilleja community are welcome to join us for some tinkering fun to kick off the weekend!
