LAB_13 INTERNATIONAL

Lab_13 International is our global network of Lab_13 studios around the world. From Ghana to North London we offer a tangible spare dedicated to investigation, innovation and creativity.

 

ABOUT LAB_13 INTERNATIONAL

 

We have developed a family of laboratories based within primary and secondary schools, in both rural and urban environments, across the UK, London, America and Africa. All our Lab_13's run external from curriculum pressures, and are managed entirely by the students of the school.

 

Lab_13 is inspired by the Room 13 international network of art studios, set up in schools to allow children to explore their creativity by following their own rules.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

A small group of students are selected to become the Management Team of their Lab_13 and have the responsibility to manage the lab. From recruitment, experiments to resources, every aspect of Lab_13 is decided on by the Management Team.

 

Each Lab_13 Management Team recruits a ‘person-in-residence’, with either a scientific, engineering or inventing background. This dedicated adult is hired by the students and school to assist with investigations, ensure the children are conducting experiments safely, and lend a hand where needed.

 

LAB_13 IN YOUR SCHOOL

 

Interested in launching a Lab_13 for the children in your school? Ignite! can support you to set up a successful Lab_13 by offering staff training, room design and advise on the recruiting of a Scientist in Residence.
