The Rotary Club of Spruce Grove Innovation Lab is THE ultimate Technology Makerspace. Inside this futuristic, experimental, instrumental, and retrospective room lives endless opportunities including going on a virtual vacation to Iceland, creating a new electrical design for door bells, sound editing original songs and scores and typing a letter on yes…a typewriter.
GarageBand - iMac 1 features sound editing, microphone, and instrumental equipment that allow musicians and vocalists of all stages and ages to create a cut of their first #1 hit.
Lego Mindstorms EVS - Four permanent laptops are dedicated to the design, demonstration and creation of Lego Robotics that have already included a puppy, a crane, and many kinds of vehicles.
Minecraft Lab - Four additional laptops are available to create a multi-player universe of the most popular kind! Mining mines and building buildings of the virtual kind are all the rage and connecting experts of all ages within the Lab.
Oculus Rift Virtual Reality - A trip to Iceland. A rollercoaster ride. A jousting tournament. A trip aboard the Millennium Falcon. What do all these things have in common? They are all things you can do in the SGPL Innovation Lab. From the thrilling to the soothing, you can literally do it all at SGPL.
LittleBits - Not big bits, but little bits. Little bits of wire, components, circuits and switches. In the hands of kids and kids-at-heart, the possibilities are endless. From door bells to fans that air condition, flashlights to pianos that play Für Elise. It's already been made in our Lab.
The typewriter - Oh Brother! We have a Brother! Typewriter that is. And people are lining up to use it. Some create word art and concrete poems. Others fill out government forms. And still more just like how it sounds.
Sewing Machine - For those short on space in their downsized homes, the crafters and the newbies, our sewing machine sewn many miles already.
