The lower level of the Q Lab is our Makerspace, outfitted with two laser cutters, several 3D printers, and a variety of tools for creators. Upstairs, there is a fully-equipped, natural science lab/classroom, featuring an outdoor “breakout space” for experimentation and differentiated instruction, as well as gene amplifiers and our newest 3D printer that prints biological materials. Designed for ages 5-14, every BPC student uses the Q Lab.

You are invited to check out our work on Tales of a 3D Printer, a blog intended for, and often written by, my middle school students, as well as anyone interested in the fascinating potential of 3D printing, student making, and the process of getting there.
