Belhaven Creative Labs

Belhaven University is excited to be part of the the maker movement through a major collaboration between its Art and Design Department and Mathematics and Computer Science Departments. This partnership, known as Belhaven Creative Labs, brings together students of all disciplines to work on physical projects that foster technical education and creative exploration.

Students will have opportunities to learn and work on projects of their own interests, as related to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).
Projects will involve 3D printing, design software, coding, circuitry and micro-processers, sculpting, data science, wood crafting, robotics, virtual reality, and more.
Belhaven Creative Labs was created to prepare students for careers, develop creativity and critical thinking, and provide an outlet to engage society in meaningful ways.

Belhaven Creative Labs are unique because its footprint spans several lab spaces around the campus including a lab for design, circuitry, and bots, another is home to the coding lab that covers simple circuits and machine learning to data science and a third hosts the 3D digital fabrication lab and sculpture studio.
