The Design and Create Labs are available Monday through Friday. A lab activity can begin as early as 8am. 

Activity durations (including break for lunch):

  • Programmable-Light: 3–4 hours
  • Optical Intrusion Detection: 4–5 hours
  • Strobe Light: 4–5 hours
  • Traffic Light: 4–5 hours
  • Signal Transmission and Receiver: 4–5 hours

The pricing of a lab activity is $30/student (with a minimum charge of 15 students) and transportation must be provided by the district. The maximum capacity of one lab is 40 students.
