Exploratory digital lab opens at Niagara College library Jan. 25

An open house of the new Niagara College ‘exploratory digital media lab’ will be held on Wednesday, January 25 at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus library.

Known as ‘The Exploratory,’ the new space features various types of technology, software, and equipment for filming and editing videos, recording audio, designing graphics and creating prototypes with a 3D printer.

The lab may be used for anyone in the NC community to film and edit videos, record and edit audios for lectures and class assignments, experiment with software, design and prototypes or just be creative.

NC library technician Jaclyn Chambers-Page describes the lab as a place to cultivate an atmosphere of entrepreneurial thinking on campus: “think it, design it, 3D print it!”

The Exploratory is located in the library on the second floor (between rooms 202 and 204, next to Tim Hortons). The open house will be held from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. and will include 3D printer demonstrations.

Niagara College offers more than 100 diploma, bachelor degree and advanced level programs, as well as more than 600 credit, vocational and general interest Part-Time Studies courses. www.niagaracollege.ca
