The Cardinal Local School District is excited to share their new state-of-the-art fabrication lab with the community. Throughout the summer Palmer Hamilton designed and implemented the facility into the former Cardinal Middle School library. The space will officially be known as the PHabLab. This is an elite 21st Century learning space that includes 3D printers, a laser cutter, CNC milling machine, Arduino microcontollers, and a Google JamBoard. This new lab will support our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiative while helping to challenge students to engage in the design process through project based learning. All students in the middle school will have opportunities to use the lab as part of daily instruction. We hope to open the space up to students in JES and CHS to use, and invite the community to come in and utilize the equipment as well.
There will be a Grand Opening Monday, Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. at the former Cardinal Middle School Library, 16175 Almeda Dr., Middlefield (44062). All are welcome. Administrators, staff, and students will be on hand conducting tours, answering questions, and demonstrating equipment capabilities.
