Welcome to the IDEALab!


This collaborative work space is designed for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.  The IDEALab empowers students to extend their learning by incorporating the Design Thinking Process and utilizing technology to solve real-world problems.  


Students will take on the roles of makers, designers and entrepreneurs while incorporating technology such as 3D printers, circuitry and Spheros while using 21st Century skills to embark on exciting, thought-provoking problem based projects.  The IDEALab works in conjunction with all Altona teachers to provide these opportunities in core and elective classes.   In addition, the IDEALab’s mission includes partnering with local businesses to provide entrepreneurial opportunities for students and to provide community nights where families can learn about technology and project-based learning together.
