Incubator of Students' Creative ideas (ISCI)
Where imagination shapes reality
What is the ISCI?
The ISCI, an acronym for "Incubator of Students' Creative Ideas", is a student-run initiative, designed to facilitate and organize "learning projects." Participation in those learning projects allows students to take control of their learning, by giving them the chance to choose what it is they want to learn, how they want to learn it, and, ultimately, decide in what way they wish to apply the knowledge they have acquired in order to produce something meaningful for themselves and their community.
Students function as architects of their own learning as they pursue, fund and support their intellectual curiosities.
The ISCI is a student-centered, student-led, student-run, project-based learning initiative using the design process to promote, support and guide students’ creative ideas in all disciplines.
The ISCI is located at the first level of the Sabbagh Library.
Every day from 9am to 5pm or by appointment.
