Nest Labs

Advancing student interdisciplinary research and making the future world they will live in, the Nest Labs are creating innovative solutions to problems ranging from climate change, robotics, artificial intelligence and ethics, and product design.

Students chosen as Nest Lab Fellows drive their research forward over the course of an academic year and are encouraged to share their work with their Phillips Academy peers and the broader academic community. The work of each Fellow is supported through a collaborative network of our own faculty, partners at other educational institutions, as well as alumni and experts in industry.
