NYC Chancellor Farina attends STEAM SmartLab HQ Opening Ceremony

Written by SmartLab Learning

PS 201Q, the Discovery School for Inquiry and Research, was in the news with the official ribbon cutting of their new STEAM SmartLab.

The SmartLab HQ and SmartLab Studio was funded through an allocation by city councilman Rory Lancman along with money from the Magnet Schools Assistance Program.

New York City Chancellor Carmen Fariña attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This, to me, is what all students should have!” said Fariña. “It’s also going to give the middle schools in the neighborhood a run for their money because these students are already going to go into middle school prepared to be scientists of tomorrow.”

News channel NY1 was there to cover the event.
