Innovations Laboratory FabLab
At the European School’s FabLab, which is the first precedent of Industrial Innovations Laboratory within school in Eastern Europe, pupils will have access to the most advanced technologies and acquire 21st-century skills.
Our FabLab has the following equipment: Laser Cutter; 3D Printers; Industrial Robot Arms; CNC Milling; Vinyl Cutter; UV Printer; Vacuum Former; Thermo Presses; Electronics Table and other tools for inventions and innovative projects.
Four laboratories are equipped with modern desktop computers and one with laptops; laboratories have one computer for each student. Every computer is connected to the internet. Laboratories use Interactive Blackboards (IWB), printers, scanners, web-cameras, headphones and other technologies to support high-quality lessons.
MLL – Multimedia Language Lab for teaching foreign languages is equipped with laptops, headphones, voice recording microphones, printer, projector and special classroom management system (Net Control 2 Classroom).
ICT infrastructure connects the computer network to two libraries, departments and every classroom. Every computer is connected to internet 24/7; every classroom and conference room has a projector to support high-quality learning process. Technologies maintenance and work is supported by the ICT department of the school.
The laboratory has a rich video archive, schemas explaining biological processes, diagrams, posters, casts of human organs. It has magnifying equipment – magnifying glasses, modern microscopes, electrical measurements, spectrophotometers, equipment to conduct electrophoresis and other necessary parts for conducting experiments, which give student the possibility to observe biological processes.
The laboratory is adjacent to a greenhouse filled with plants and an aquarium.
Physics laboratory is in accordance to modern requirements. The students’ working tables are provided with the sources of direct current and alternating current, water and natural gas. The operation of the equipment is conducted from the teachers working table, which gives him or her ability to switch the system off when necessary. The laboratory is equipped with modern standard equipment, has a source of laser, Wheatstone bridge (in electricity), digital sensors, which use Wi-Fi connect to a computer program. The school also has a telescope to look at objects in space. Students can use any resource during laboratory works. They also have an access to virtual laboratory created by Professor D. Songhulashvili.
Infrastructure of chemistry lab is in accordance with modern requirements. Students have source of electricity and water on their tables. The lab is obtained with standard and modern digital equipment, such as PH meter, sensors of pressure and temperature, Coulometer, Spectrometer, thermostat, tetrameter, centrifuge, distiller, and paper chromatograph. It also has models of natural materials, minerals. By using digital equipment the students are able to enter data in the computer program and can conduct different types of experiments and studies.
