Babcock Canada Interaction Lab
On December 6, 2016, Babcock Canada announced an investment of $800,000 into Camosun College’s TRADEMark of Excellence campaign to support next generation specialized equipment in the new future-focused Interaction Lab that bears its name.
Opening in October 2017, the Interaction Lab is part of Camosun’s commitment to enhancing applied learning, in partnership with Education and Student Experience. The college’s emphasis on applied learning helps Camosun meet the needs of students in a way that makes education meaningful. It is integral to bringing skills, knowledge and real-world problem-solving to the classroom experience.
The Interaction Lab is designed to engage faculty across disciplines, fostering a collaborative approach to innovation where new ideas can become reality.
“The technology is state of the art but more importantly it’s the people and the interaction,” says Dr. Tim Walzak, Director of Camosun Innovates. “It’s exciting to have under one roof students, faculty and our industry partners—all working together on real-world solutions.”
