STEAM & ROBOTICS
The demand for STEAM professionals in the US outweighs supply. In the next 10 years, STEAM fields are expected to grow by 10.8%. Improved Science Labs and new STEAM/Robotics spaces will greatly impact the learning environment for a wide range of students. Incorporating new curriculum allows an equity of opportunity for all students to develop 21st century skills and better prepare for the future.
To learn effectively, students must do more than listen. They must read, write, inquire, experiment, discuss and solve problems.
A shift from Science Theory to Science Application “Learning by Doing”
The Setting Matters
A well-designed learning setting allows an inquiry-based curriculum to thrive. It provides the opportunity for collaboration and the flexibility for students to access information and interact with the world. It adjusts to each project, each group, and each individual.
What could our new STEAM/Robotics/Science Labs look like?
- Flexible furniture to allow individual, small, or large group collaboration
- Access to utilities, i.e. gas, water, power, etc.
- Presentation areas
- Dedicated, secure and ample storage areas
- Abundant technology
- Optimizes research, analysis, interaction and hands-on activities
- Spaces to support every elementary, middle and high school student in the classroom and for after school activities
