The Upper School technology space opened in August of 2018. "The Mill", named by Cannon parents, Bryan and Holli Delaney and James and Leah Hartsell, who gave a leadership gift that made this exciting renovation possible, includes the following:
• Makerspace Studio
• Fabrication Studio
• Computer Studio
• Video and Audio Recording Studio
Step inside the 5,000 square foot Mill and you’ll spot innovative, hands-on learning in every corner. The Media Productions class is busy editing concept videos they recently captured. Media Arts students huddle over their Macs, manipulating artwork in Photoshop. And follow that ever-present drone of saws to discover the Creative Design and Engineering I class building life-size reindeer from lumber.
“I'm excited to have a space to learn, explore, create, and grow using a huge range of technologies and tools. We have access to a range of tools as familiar as clay, paint, and fabric, up to new equipment like 3D printers, laser cutters, and CNC woodcutters. Students will realize their ideas and designs in ways they previously could have only imagined.”
- Mr. Mush Hughes, Upper School Makerspace Facilitator
