STEAM Lab Grand Opening!!!!

We are excited to announce the Grand Opening of our newly transformed computer lab! On Monday, October 20th we will reveal our new Southern Pines Primary STEAM lab. Thanks to a generous grant from the Public Education Foundation of Moore County, our vision is becoming a reality and we can't wait to see the impact it will have on our students!

Images from STEAM Week 2014

During the last week of school last year, we had STEAM week. You see images from STEAM week below. These images offer examples of the hands on learning that students experienced throughout the week as we integrated these 5 subjects together. This is the type of learning that will now be ongoing throughout the year in our STEAM lab.

Why are we so excited?? Why should you be excited??

Below you will find some great articles that explain the intent behind our STEAM initiative. We are certain that these articles will help you catch the vision and hope that you will join with us as we move full STEAM ahead with the students at Southern Pines Primary!

How can you help?

After reading these articles, I can imagine you are sure that this is something you would like to be a part of, right? How can you help us make our STEAM lab the very best it can be? Our computer lab's physical transformation will be complete by October 20th, but it is far from a STEAM lab without materials and resources. Consider doing one or more of the following:

  • Donate materials to the STEAM lab: anything that will inspire students to design, collaborate, build, problem solve--we are trying to provide a space where students can investigate and explore--be curious and creative--a space where they will drive their own learning.
  • Donate to our STEAM lab fund so that we can purchase necessary materials and resources
  • Contact businesses and ask them to sponsor our STEAM lab
  • Share this flyer via social media
  • Spend some time in the lab so that you can see what all the excitement is about
  • Volunteer some time in the lab to help us organize materials/resources

Please contact us if you are able to support our efforts as we work to make our transformation truly complete!
