Fund For Excellence: a Great Achievement!
The ISG Innovation Lab
Our opening fund raising project was the provision of a Technology Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab will provide students throughout the whole school with access to such equipment as:
- High Capacity Desktop computers
- A CNC machine
- A 3D printer
- A laser Cutter
- Circuit boards and sensors
- Raspberry pi programming computers
- Go Pro ‘Karma’ Drones
- Virtual Reality headsets
- Arduino coding and electronics kits
- Lego and robotics kits
- Green Screen capabilities
Our goal was to raise €20,000, in order to convert a current classroom and to provide the equipment for the lab. The largest single donation was given the opportunity to claim naming rights for the new Innovation Lab.
In November 2021 we were proud to open
The Gruppo Spinelli Innovation Lab!
The Gruppo Spinelli Innovation Lab
is already in Action!
ISG is very proud of our new learning space that will enable our students to develop the critical skills, motivation, and knowledge to thrive in a rapidly changing world, helping to make learning more relevant and meaningful. The ISG Innovation Lab is available to students in both Primary and Secondary School and will be available for scheduled lessons with our technology teacher, as well as being used to support classroom teachers and students in completing Project Based Learning assignments.

The vision and purpose of the
ISG Innovation Lab
What is the innovation lab?
The Innovation Lab is a place to tinker, to create, to learn, and to invent. It creates an environment of learning and innovation. The Innovation Lab provides access to the skills, the materials, and the advanced technology to allow the students to make (almost) anything. Innovation, collaboration, project-based learning, design thinking, and entrepreneurship will come together in the ISG Innovation Lab.
WHY CREATE AN INNOVATION LAB AT ISG?
ISG innovation lab will serve as a catalyst for our curriculum that takes students beyond the traditional STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and incorporates the art of elegant design. The lab integrates technology, education, and creativity into a 21st-century program preparing ISG students for innovative thinking and creative collaboration. It expands students' choices and gives them access to a different model of learning that may better serve their learning styles and interests, and ultimately better prepare them for our ever-changing world of innovation and technology.
