About Innovation Academy

The Innovation Academy theme focuses on science, technology, engineering and math -- or STEM. Albany High's science electives are offered in Innovation Academy and available to all students, as are Career and Technical Education programs in woodworking, carpentry, construction, car care and automotive technology, transportations systems, computer networking, electrical technology and home electronics. Career Explorations programs in engineering also are offered through Innovation Academy.

 

A unique feature of Innovation Academy is a mock clean room that simulates the lab associated with the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE). Clean rooms are used in fields sensitive to environmental contamination, including semiconductor manufacturing, biotechnology and the life sciences.
