SkyFi Learning Laboratory

The SkyFi Learning Laboratory is located on the second floor of the airport terminal building. Free high-speed internet and learning spaces are available for K-12 students. Students can schedule a desk by either calling or going online if they can. The service is free, but students must schedule a time to ensure access.

Students ages 16 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult, age 21 or over. To ensure a focused learning environment, only students and their adult escorts are allowed in the laboratory. In addition, the GTR Airport Authority is picking up the parking tab for students utilizing the laboratory.

All CDC COVID-19 protocols will be followed. Masks are mandatory, and each work area will be cleaned between uses.

“We are hoping to help students throughout the Golden Triangle cope with the challenges the pandemic has brought,” “The GTR SkyFi Learning Laboratory is just one way we can help serve our communities.” -Executive Director, Michael Hainsey​
