High-tech school planned for former Toyota facility

November 11, 2018 by  

Next August, a new option will be available for area public high school students – the Ignite Institute at Roebling Innovation Center.

A high-tech campus is necessary for the operation of a high-tech school. Ignite will offer case-based, hands-on courses in the STEAM subjects, which are in strong demand in fast-growing industries.

Northern Kentucky high school students, including those of Florence, will be able to attend this new school, which is located in Erlanger on the 22-acre former campus of Toyota’s Quality & Production Engineering Laboratory.

Logo design is not just a factor for companies, but also an exciting element in the opening of a new school.

The Boone County School system is receiving financial help in creating the new school in the form of a Work Ready Skills $6.8 million initiative grant. The money is to turn the campus on Atlantic Avenue into a nontraditional working space that will deliver an empowering learning environment for students.

Among the new school’s feature are video production spaces, computer-aided manufacturing facilities, and a variety of smart spaces to foster collaboration between educators, students, and industrial leaders in Greater Cincinnati.

Boone County Schools will operate the school, although students across the region will be eligible to attend. No tuition will be charged and no minimum GPA will be required in order to be accepted.
