Innovation, Ideas, and Imagination
The iLab was created to give students a specific space for the incubation of ideas, for invention, imagination and impact. It is a space for design thinking, which invites students to find and resolve problems. Design thinking combines the subjective inquiry of the humanities, the objective truth-seeking of the sciences, and the creative and open-ended investigation of art and engineering. The iLab is a place to hypothesize, investigate, build, test, fail, and rebuild, and where resources will be used wisely, creatively and with playful purpose.
