We have more than 75 Title 1 schools that have applied for STEAM Labs asking us to help them with grants to cover the cost. Let us know if your organization has grants that could help.
What is a STEAM Lab?
It’s a maker space that inspires integrative learning in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).
The maker space in our warehouse is so well used that we thought we ought to start building similar spaces in schools so that kids everywhere can create! Our STEAM Labs are outfitted with tools, materials from our warehouse, and shelving – and even the shelving is made from re-purposed materials.
The best part of our STEAM Labs is that we incorporate students into the design and building process, teaching them tool safety and organizational skills along the way. When the Lab is complete, students feel empowered to use the space and really take ownership of it. We even include a teacher training workshop with the purchase of every STEAM Lab, so that each school’s teachers feel fully equipped to use the space!
