    The Kindergarten, 1st, and 5th grades have all been working on their Project Lead The Way modules. Check out the individual grade-level pages to see more details:

    In addition to these projects, the STEAM Lab has been exploring an exciting new set of tools. Thanks to a generous grant from MACUL, we now have two 3D printers! Check out the 3D Printing blog for updates about this exciting new set of tools.

  • Cardboard wanted!
    As our participation in the Global Cardboard Challenge ramps up, we are starting to run low on cardboard boxes and other pieces of cardboard. If you have cardboard boxes, flat pieces of cardboard or other cardboard shapes like tubes, please bring them in to the STEAM Lab! Please make sure any cardboard you donate is in good shape (no cuts/gouges/holes).

    You can have a student drop them off in the Lab or in the hallway at the bottom of the stairwell leading to the lab. Thank you!

    On Friday, our 5th grade classes got to see an awesome demonstration of gravity, which they have been studying in their science unit. Here's the video of the final test to see if two objects of different weights fall at the same speed.
