About Startup Incubator
The Startup Incubator at the Adelson Educational Campus is a 5000 square foot inventor's workshop.
Students in Grades 6-12 work entrepreneurially to design and prototype digital and physical products to solve problems, entertain, or communicate. Kickstarted with vision and investment from Steve and Dawn Mack, and Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson, the facility was completed in September 2016 as part of a school-wide Technology Innovations Initiative including a one-to-world paradigm and extensive teacher professional development.
The Incubator offers a state-of-the-art Fab Lab and companion Heavy Duty Lab; a Coding Lab; and a Digital Media Studio. Through facilities, instruction, collaboration, mentorship and partnership, Adelson students have all the tools they need to engage in entrepreneurial ventures, developing lean startups, to bring their original works to market.
Coding: New programmers explore coding basics before migrating to mobile app dev. AP Computer Science Principles and AP CS A (Java) are taught at the high school level.
Fabrication: 3D design progresses via a variety of software environments. Extensive fab tools include 3D printers, a laser cutter, mills, a lathe, a table saw, a soldering station, a vinyl cutter, sewing machines, and hand tools.
Digital Media: Digital media production invites students to create, entertain, and inform through digital photography and animation, digital sculpting, digital music, and more!
