Bullis Innovation & Technology Lab (BITLab)
The Makerspace for robotics and high tech design is a place where creative individuals can find the tools to build almost anything. This space is the home for 3D and resin printers, vinyl and laser cutters, sewing machines, and work stations. Learning in a Makerspace is more than just learning how to use those tools, it is about learning how to create new things, solve problems creatively, and design objects and experiences that can change lives. This is learning that is truly meaningful and impactful.
The adjacent Fab Lab features such equipment as a bench grinder, welding station, CNC router, milling machine, vacuum former, ducted spray booth, drill press, injection molding machine, furnace and much more.
But the true magic is in the creativity and innovation that the space and the equipment enables. From Spanish classes to leadership clubs, theater tech needs to math manipulatives, the BITlab regularly provides everything students and their teachers need to bring learning to life and build in three dimensions just about anything that can be imagined.
