Following a comprehensive, $6.2 million renovation, the Guerin Family Institute and Fab Lab at Milken officially opened In September 2016. The state-of-the-art facility's makeover was part of the school’s ongoing commitment to advancing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, promoting innovative technologies and embracing Milken’s position as a leader in secondary education.
Located on Milken’s Upper School campus, the Guerin Family Institute houses the area’s only MIT-inspired Fab Lab. A groundbreaking home for student exploration and invention, the Fab Lab includes a computer-aided design (CAD) lab, an engineering lab and a cutting-edge classroom, enabling students to redefine possibilities in programming and design.
The Guerin Family Institute and Fab Lab is equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, a milling machine and key programming tools, nurturing entrepreneurship and innovation by empowering students to give life to imagination. Spurred on by their work here, many Milken students enter into national and international competitions, often walking away with prestigious awards and recognition.
Featuring open spaces meant to foster collaboration and support the free flow of creative ideas, the facility is a hub at Milken, connecting students and faculty with each other and with a global community of professional and educational resources. Members of our community from across disciplines access the technology and training available, leveraging what they learn to push the boundaries of next-generation discovery.
