Labyrinth laboratory school was founded in 2016 in Brno. Since its beginning it has focused on learning environments and student-centred learning. In its activities the school reflects competencies for the 21st century. It secures safe and supportive environment for the children through collaboration of the school, parents, community, and external partners.
Labyrinth uses the most recent model of interactive touch panels and mobile tablet lab thanks to its partners. Classrooms are furnished with ergonomic and movable furniture that enables flexible manipulation and changes of layout that match various forms and methods of teaching. The school includes a specialized art studio with a kiln and a kinetic room. There are specific pieces of furniture or design items that are used for specific purposes – learning, relaxing, reading, supporting language skills (Centre for Casual Exposure Time) etc. Labyrinth hosts a Digicentre, a centre for digital technologies. It is used by Labyrinth students (Minecraft education, Lego education, 3D printing, ozobots, etc...), it is also used for teacher training (regular workshops opened to wide public).
There is also a Maker Space Centre – a place for support of creativity and innovative ideas. The Maker Space is attended by students who can get a support from teachers or external experts to make their ideas real.
