The Outdoor STEM Laboratory is a space where experiments and explorations extend from the classrooms. It is designed to provide a work space where children can continue their investigations in multiple ways to form a deeper understanding of the materials and the concepts. The environment actively supports the school’s mission by acting as a tool for active, hands-on, in-depth, independent and collaborative studies among children, teachers, and parents. Our STEM Curriculum Coordinator, Monica Dolan, maintains the lab with meaningful activities that support the school’s STEM based curriculum.
The Children’s Center at Caltech and our STEM Laboratory has been featured in many ECSTEM related articles. Visit www.ecstem.org/ECSTEMARTICLES to see these great articles!
