Farber Family IDEA Collaborative

The William and Audrey Farber Family IDEA Collaborative at Hillel, built in 2014, includes a maker space, proto-type lab, greenhouse, gathering space, green screen technology and 3D printing capabilities. It gives our students and educators the flexible spaces, inspiring environment and extraordinary tools necessary for our children to gain needed 21st-century skills in critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. 
 
Here students manipulate technology, electronics and textiles to apply their knowledge through making, tinkering and exploring, using the skills Hillel teaches to create new solutions to problems ranging from potholes to hunger. 
 
In the Innovation Hub and maker space, the multiple intelligences our students display come to life. The student who is gifted with her hands, as she concretizes concepts through project-based learning, is as gifted as the student who excels in math class. Every student finds his passion and drives his own instruction. Every student has endless opportunities for self-expression.
