Studio B

Studio B brings all the creative ideas and talents in our Tech Center programs together. Programs at the Tech Center can post multidisciplinary projects to the Studio B Project Board. Programs can work together for the first time to build creatively and solve problems. What if you could work with students, instructors and mentors to...

  • create opportunities for Early Childhood Education in Scratch, programmable robots and MakeyMakey projects? What if students from Electronic Recording Arts program were asked to help build video documentation of learning and teaching practice? Work with many different people in different programs to prototype to build learning paths for young children, and older students in many diverse ways.
  • prototype parts, planes, perform flight tests and simulations in the BTC Aviation Program?
  • build electronic modifications into cars, or prototype new designs and customizations with Auto Body and Auto Tech?  
  • design, build prototype models and bring metal sculptures to life with students in Design and Illustration and Welding programs?


We’re creating partnerships with Burlington Generator, Champlain College to explore new ideas. The possibilities are endless and we’re looking for your creativity.
