Innovation Lab

What is the a Innovation Lab?

Innovation Lab is a collaborative, shared workspace where students can get hands-on experience creating anything they can imagine with the 
tools and materials available to them. Our Innovation Lab features technology 
like 3D printers, circuit boards, CNC  machines, laser cutters and robotics.

The Innovation Lab at South Miami Senior High is also a creative, problem-solving space where ideas take physical shape.  The Innovation Lab is equipped with high-precision industrial tools that make it easy to produce an accurate prototype, model or replica of virtually any object, using a wide range of materials and computer-aided design (CAD) software

Collaboration and experimentation are key to innovation at the Innovation Lab, where students are encouraged to work with peers  in order to identify problems and search for solutions from various perspectives


From 3D printing to textile crafting, the Innovation Lab provides South Miami students  with hands-on access to tools and environments that foster interdisciplinary collaboration and discovery. We invite students, tinkerers, and inventors to unleash their natural creativity.  Start turning your ideas into reality today!


Our mission is to foster a collaborative environment wherein people can explore and create intersections between technology, science, art, and culture.

We are a collaborative environment for people to explore the intersections between technology, art and culture.
