The Educational Technology Lab (ETL) is a part of the UIC College of Education. We provide technical support to the College’s faculty, staff and students, help host online classes and seminars, as well as provide access to the newest technology in education.
ETL also provides day-to-day support to assure efficient use of computers, peripherals, and software. College of education students also have access to high performance server clusters for their stats and other demanding projects. ETL serves as a combined education and technology resource, including resources to support interactive classroom opportunities.
Besides our on-campus IT services, we are also committed to educating children through community-based computer projects that promote scientific and critical thinking. We also host the ETL STEM Summer Camp, where children across the region come to UIC and learn about exciting topics such as Computer Programming, Hydroponics, Environmental Science, Engineering, and other emerging topics. Children engage in activities and lessons through the use of robotics, science simulations, and digital technology during annual ETL STEM Summer Camp.
