Beginning in a few weeks, the Lab will be open during recess for the students come in and explore. Depending on the interest, we may do a grade level a day or possibly a class a day. Based on the excitement on the faces of the kids this week...we're gonna be busy.
We want them to use the Lab to create and explore, tinker and build. If they have an idea for a project then we'll figure out how to make it. Following the "Engineering Design Process", they will come up with a goal they want to reach. Then, they ask questions, imagine possible answers, pick an answer & plan it, create it & test, and then improve it by starting the process over again.
One teacher told me that after leaving the lab, one of her students said that coming to the Lab made him want to build something. S.T.E.M. education at it's best.
Below are pictures of some of our students when they visited the Lab.
