California’s New Elementary STEAM Lab

Written by SmartLab Learning

The STEAM SmartLab HQ at Discovery School of the Arts in Victorville, CA is off to a great start!

The program launched this semester and Discovery elementary students are exploring a wide range of technologies, including animation, mechanics and structures, robotics, programming, video production, and more.

The Victorville Daily Press visited the Discovery SmartLab highlighted the program’s emphasis on problem-solving across all grade levels. While hard at work building and programming her robot, sixth-grader Zara Haney told the Daily Press, “You don’t do this in regular classrooms. Here you can teach yourself and learn how to work together to figure things out.”

According to the Daily Press, key donors who helped fund the SmartLab HQ are also thrilled with the program’s success.
