Knoxville Catholic is excited to announce the revitalization of the former theatre space into a state-of-the-art STEM Innovation Lab where our students can be as creative and innovative as they dream to be.
"As technology continues to accelerate our world, our students need the best educational experience in the fields of engineering, computer programming, robotics, science, and design,” said KCHS President, Dickie Sompayrac. "The Innovation Lab uniquely positions KCHS to educate students in a transformational way unlike any other school in the area."
The mission of the Innovation Lab is to create a welcoming space for students of all disciplines to learn future career skills on industry standard equipment. Knoxville Catholic is committed to offering a comprehensive STEM curriculum and will partner with local industry experts to bring about meaningful STEM opportunities and engagement.
The Innovation Lab will also house our award-winning robotics program – Robotichauns Team 2393.
Innovation Lab Chair and CEO of ELO Touchscreen Solutions, Craig Witsoe, says, “I am honored to help launch the Innovation Lab at Catholic High. Getting students excited about STEM through the innovation center and new curriculum offerings will give students an early edge for the many exciting careers connected to science, technology, engineering, and math.”
