New Tools for Teaching

Nothing can replace the value of hands-on experience when it comes to learning, which is why the new LAS innovation lab courses are so exciting! Our students are invited to take a leading role in their projects and build imaginative creations using our new range of tools and equipment. From 3D printers and laser cutters to sewing machines and woodworking tools, LAS students are encouraged to learn new skills or develop further expertise in these fields. The sky really is the limit!

Much of the machinery is from the award-winning tool manufacturer Festool and was supplied with the help of a generous donation from a family within the LAS community. A space has been created in the Beau Site building to house our state-of-the-art equipment, and we know LAS students are inspired by the endless creative possibilities that are at their fingertips!

LAS aims to develop lifelong learners through experiential learning, which is why keeping up-to-date tools is so important to us. At LAS, we move education beyond the confines of the classroom and provide students with practical experience to help develop their interests. We can’t wait to see what new and exciting projects our talented students create in the future!
