NMU opens new digital learning lab

Northern Michigan University cut the ribbon on a new technology lab this week. 

The Hannewald Digital Learning Design Lab features 3D printers, iPads, GoPro cameras, robotics and other devices that all are designed to help education students and local teachers engage youth in technology projects. 

The dedication of the lab on October 3 included demonstrations of the tech available, and activities for school-aged children. One of the specialized devices available in the lab, for example, can sew circuitry into clothing to create wearable tech. 

The lab is named after the late alumnus and teacher Florence Hagberg-Hannewald, and was supported by a $100,000 to the NMU Foundation in her name.
