Located on the lower level of our Secondary School Library, it features a mixed realities room (we were the first school in Australia to have an Eon I-bench for 3D stereoscopic Augmented Reality and one of the first schools in Australia to use hololens in curriculum), a conference room, video wall, Z Space tablets (we were the first school in Queensland to be using these), Surface Studios, HP Sprouts, 3D printers, a competition size robotics table, humanoid robots, floor projectors and drones. The Digital Hub is also used by extracurricular groups such as the Google CS First Coding Club, the Young ICT Explorers, Drone Club and the F1 Challenge Teams.

Both contain texts and online resources, computers and smart boards, with specialist staff on hand to assist students.
