Our STEAM lab is in full swing at Shady Grove Elementary. You might wonder, “What is a STEAM lab?” The STEAM lab is an integration of different skills and disciplines, such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics, with the goal of providing a richer educational experience. It promotes collaboration and exploratory learning, and includes hands-on activities that emphasize the application of scientific concepts as we experience them in our daily lives. In addition, our innovative lab promotes critical thinking, problem-solving skills and lifelong learning. Here are some of our first graders in the lab. They have had lots of fun exploring and engaging in many fun, hands-on activities and always look forward to scoping out new additions.
We want to say thank you again to our SGE PTO for raising the money to purchase the items needed to get our STEAM Lab up and running!
