“The decision to build this virtual learning space represents a major step forward in ensuring our students are prepared with the necessary skills for success in a rapidly evolving world,” Dr O’Rielly said.

Lumination’s learning sign lead, Shai Coggins, said the lab is hoped to build skills for the current and future workforces.
