Your Impact: A Glowforge for the Lower School

Your generosity has made it possible for our Lower School to feature not one, but two design labs, both intentionally designed spaces where students from preschool through fifth grade can question, create, and innovate. One of the newest additions to our design labs, a Glowforge laser printer, happens to have a St. Andrew’s connection - Glowforge was founded by Tony Wright ‘90.

“I hope the greatest lesson that students take away is that the only thing standing between them and what they want to create is the right tools and the knowledge to use them,” Tony said. “This applies to everything, whether it's an art project, a prototype, a piece of software, or a startup. And there's never been a time where tools and knowledge were at the fingertips of so many people!"

Feeling inspired? Give now.
