Graw Innovation Center

Try, Fail, and Try Again

The Graw Innovation Center (GIC) is a space for exploration where we challenge our students and faculty to think outside the box. They create solutions to real problems while learning leadership, empathy and perseverance. Innovative and entrepreneurial ideas don't just happen, they require work and persistence. That work happens here.
In designing for others, empathy emerges through the listening process. Rather than make assumptions about the root of a problem, we ask questions and the problem or need is flushed out. Then we begin to brainstorm and imagine what is possible. 
    • Create

      Our RxNT TECH CENTER — with 3D printers, a laser cutter, sewing machines, electronics, and so much more — is where students bring their designs to life.

    • Connect

      Our CONNECT SPACE is a computer lab, a digital media classroom and a portal to the whole world equipped with 18 state of the art Mac Desktops.

    • Collaborate

      We take flexibility to another level in our COLLABORATE SPACE. With moveable desks and multiple configurations, this space is built for synergy.

Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create

The Center is a hub for visionary thought and purposeful experimentation. There's a chance for every student to get involved from whole school events to skills workshops and classes from every discipline. It's all about solving the right problem with the right tools and strategy — Engineer by Design thinking at its best.
