Welcome to the STEM Lab!

It is August which means back to school. I am looking forward to seeing all of the KGES students in a few weeks. I have a lot of exciting experiences for our students this school year. I have been very busy this summer teaching other teachers in Washington and Roanoke Counties about Children's Engineering. I also had a chance to travel to Huntsville, Alabama for a week of professional development hosted by the MDA (Missile Defence Agency). I had an amazing experience and learned a great deal from the experts there. I can't wait to share what I learned with my students.

How Can I Help the STEM Lab?

There are a number of ways to help our STEM Lab to be successful. Some of those ways include donating to our project on, sending in materials from our donation list, or purchasing items on our Amazon Wish Lists. I frequently update the lists on Amazon. I often find used copies of the books on Abebooks. If you are interested in volunteering in our STEM Lab, send me an email and we can determine the best time for you to come share your skills with our students.

The STEM Lab is always looking for materials that often end up in recycle bins. If you are able to save them for our class, it is greatly appreciated.
