This year our Maker's Space has turned into a STEM Lab (Science Technology Engineering and Math). The students have been working in teams and pairs to complete and build solutions to challenges. We are using the design process to help build and design solutions to the problems or challenges they are given. I want to send out a gracious thank you to all those parents who have donated supplies or even décor to our STEM lab. The students love it!
