Mobile STEM Lab
We are pleased to announce our new Mobile STEM Lab has been completed and is visiting each school. With successful stops at Straley, Mercer, Lashmeet, Spanishburg, Melrose, Sun Valley, and Athens Elementary Schools, its next stop is Oakvale Elementary. This lab demonstrates many exciting STEM concepts to students by allowing the teachers to first select two topics from a list of many possible ones that are relevant to the class. The class then is presented the topics using the various technologies in the Lab including: vSpace 3D desktops, VEX robots, Solar and Power demonstrations, a weather station, MakerBot 3D printers, and many more.
With it's theme of 'Motivate, Innovate, Educate', we seek to introduce new technologies and concepts to students and teachers so they can be inspired to continue learning about them in the classrooms.
Stay tuned as Lenovo VR gear has been delivered to the Mobile STEM Lab and will be available to each school visited. With this gear, students can take virtual field trips to destinations around the world.
