Lumination Learning Lab Launch

Last Friday the College held an official launch of its new Lumination Learning Lab at the Melton Campus.

A former IT laboratory has been converted into a state-of-the-art virtual immersive and augmented reality space for learning.

There were a number of special guests who attended the opening including State Member for Melton, Mr Steve McGhie MP, the Federal Member for Hawke Mr Sam Rae MP, City of Melton Mayor Cr Lara Carli, Mr John Mills and Mr Craig Holmes from Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools, Melton Parish Priest Father Michael Moody, principals from our local parish feeder primary schools, members of the School Advisory Council and Parents and Friends Association.

With the help of our staff Lab Champions, guests tried out the new technology, choosing to visit the Sistine Chapel, repair a spaceship, experience an earthquake or perform the latest dance moves.

Classes in the Lumination Lab will align with lessons and units of work from years 7 to 12 in our curriculum.

With access to both Lumination’s extensive library and a dedicated education officer to co-write targeted and specific lessons and units, students will experience learning on a completely new level.

This virtual reality technology will provide skills beyond the classroom as many industries including medical, mining, design and sport already use immersive technologies in the workplace.
