The STEM Lab is available throughout the day for the children. Depending on each classroom’s outside schedule, the children are able to freely explore the environment. Materials are readily accessible for use at any time. The STEM Curriculum Coordinator, Melissa Samples, collaborates with the teachers to maintain the lab. She is in the lab every morning to conduct activities, experiments, and develop the critical thinking skills of each child. Activities are carefully planned, set up with intention and supports each individualized classroom curriculum. The STEM Lab is open from 7:30am 5:30pm during operating school hours.
