The Wilson STEAM Lab is an after school program geared toward Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math(STEAM)

The STEAM Lab program has an inquiry-based approach that allows students to collaborate and be critical thinkers with hands on exploration and reflection. 
We have real life projects that challenge student knowledge and ways of thinking.  Students will have to accomplish both independent tasks along with collaborative ones to come together as a team.

Had a blast today with the Koeble - Erickson group! We had some amazing discoveries and ideas for next time.  We found out stale marshmallows aren't the best conductors!  I was blow away by some of the ideas and controllers created today.

We started by researching the controls of a Cool Math Game.  Then we created a plan of how we are going to make new controls.  From there club members created their own controller to play the Cool Math Game.  Check out some of the creative controllers.

Students were introduced to the Makey Makey kits today and were even able to experiment!  Once they understood the concepts of how it works they ran with it creating their own buttons for cool math games.  It was awesome hearing all the laughter and seeing the smiles.  Check out some action shots!
