Department: Innovation + Fabrication
Milken’s Innovation and Fabrication Department concretizes classroom learning by encouraging students to roll up their sleeves and create. At Milken, experiential learning is central to fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, and innovation. Students conceptualize, design, and build a vast array of products that connect to their classwork, their personal passions, and ideas they want to explore. We stress that iteration leads to excellence, as well as humility and self-efficacy. Located on the Upper School campus, the Guerin Family Institute and FABLab, our Signature Space, is one of the only FABLabs in the region and is equipped with high and low tech machines. It serves as a place for students, faculty, and Milken families to play, experiment, learn, and innovate. Milken graduates take that creativity out into the world with their honed problem-solving skills to positively impact their community.
