The Berkeley Carroll School

Beta Lab

Unveiled in September 2017, The Beta Lab at Lincoln Place is our 2000 square foot, two-level STEAM lab, providing the space, equipment and expertise for Middle and Upper School students to integrate engineering principles — such as measurement, prototyping, and the ability to advocate for an idea — into classes of all disciplines. Managed by our full-time Engineer-in-Residence, the Beta Lab provides a spacious, well-equipped location for classes to take hands-on learning to the next level.

Because the Beta Lab has been designed to inspire student experimentation, more exciting uses are yet to be discovered. The lab provides the space to accommodate equipment and materials for which we haven’t yet planned, and we are excited to see the creative and critical projects our students and faculty dream up in the months and years to come.
