Our vision is to create a transformation in the career culture of the Gulf South by creating a STEM pathway where students can achieve their dreams then reinvest their knowledge and leadership into the economic engine of not only their community, but in the Gulf South region.
The mission of the Innovation Labs is to inspire students in the Gulf South region to be Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math leaders and innovators by providing a world-class education and fabrication STEM facility with collaborative and mentor-based programs.
The Innovation Labs is a non-profit organization born from a St. Tammany, Louisiana 14yr old's desire to build a STEM facility that allows hands-on, interactive abilities to engage in the skills necessary for our future job market. Through a passion in robotics and a desire to get robotics experience in the hands of more students his age, Ryan's vision for iLabs is dedicated to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM).
How? Children learn best through active interaction in subject matter; hence, our facility will have a focus on building competitive robotics through easily accessible locations for students to enhance skills in mechanics, programming, design, and business management - just a handful of skills they will learn!
Keeping the newest generations ahead of the technology curve these days is tough. Technology changes by the minute and advancements are exponential. Our educational system is not designed for rapid changes. That’s where we come in. The Innovation Lab is here as a non-affiliated non-profit to expose our new generations to the latest and greatest in technology and give them hands-on experiences that are not available in traditional educational settings.
We invite you to join our venture as we strive to create this unique and community-focused experience for our youth!
