Steaming Ahead

SPS will be launching our new STEAM Lab for the 2016-2017 school year.  The goal of the lab is to create an environment of hands on learning, creativity and collaboration in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.   Designed for grades K-8, the lab will include a library of resources that will engage our young learners and encourage exploration, experimentation and innovation. SPS is thinking well into the future as we prepare our students for a global community and an ever changing world.

To ensure a successful roll out this fall, teachers have been planning, training and working with students in the classroom as a team of early adopters.  The first generation STEAM Lab items have been received with excitement and enthusiasm by teachers and students alike. We encourage you to view the items currently being used by SPS students on the websites below:

Hummingbird Robotics:
From Carnegie Mellon’s CREATE lab, Hummingbird combines engineering and robotics with arts and crafts to engage a team of DIY creators to invent, rather than only use, technology.

The Finch:

littleBits Electronics for Education:

Makey-Makey:
