Media OutReach – 27 October 2022 – Invictus International School (Singapore)
has announced that it has joined the FabLab network, a global programme managed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s Centre for Bits and Atoms (CBA). This on-site Fabrication Lab is one of the first school-based FabLabs in Asia. The partnership reinforces the school’s ‘future-ready’ approach, increasing opportunities to extend innovative thinking.
FabLab is a state-of-the-art design, technology, and innovation space that provides students with a creative and collaborative outlet to develop new skills. The platform is developed in conjunction with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s Centre for Bits and Atoms (CBA), with a group of MIT researchers who will provide open source software and programs for the students. Through this programme, Invictus’ students will explore their passions through engaging, hands-on projects. They will also gain access to a variety of design thinking, maker and coding activities. The students can also leverage on the expertise of experts, digital tools and machines found in Fab Labs around the world.
Invictus International School (Singapore) is set to build the next generation of international students through its visionary learning solutions such as the creation of FabLab. To distinguish itself from the conventional international school curriculum, Invictus International School seeks brand-new ways to nurture 21st century skills in its students. As Singapore moves forward in an increasingly complex world, it becomes crucial that the next generation of leaders are equipped to spearhead efforts to further empower, equip, care, steward, and build up our young children.
With FabLab, the school will contribute to an expanding pool of talents and innovators in digital fabrication. The maker space also empowers students to initiate and experiment, so they develop a stronger sense of ownership over their learning. Overall, the creation of FabLab at our Centrium campus, aligned with other core programs by Invictus, will emphasise personal growth, fundamental skills and knowledge. The Invictus education experience aims to develop the child holistically.
