The "21st Century Innovation Labs" auctioned at last year's gala made this fund a huge success - a combined total of $265,000. It has allowed for a complete renovation in the school's robotics program. All three campuses have benefitted from the fund, including infrastructure changes, steady supplies for tinkering and design, and new robots and their respective programming materials.

It has allowed camps and after-school programs at all three campuses to reap the benefits of this new space and materials with new classes scheduled.

The Ortega campus has had several new elements to support the middle and high-school classes. The lab space is accessible to all teachers, and has allowed for inter-disciplinary collaboration. High-school students used the newly decked-out lab space for this year's Lycée StartUp Project and are looking forward to working on videos and movies with the new green screen. High-schoolers are now well-equipped to tackle and find creative solutions in the Google Technovation and Verizon Innovative App Challenges.

The Ashbury and Sausalito campuses now have special work tables and stools in their new Innovation Lab spaces allowing for teamwork, building, and programming. New robots are ready for use, to be programmed by the lower school grades.
