Welcome to the STEAM Lab

  • STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math to guide student inquiry, problem solving, collaboration, and creativity.  Students become designers, creators, thinkers, and leaders. 

    The focus of the FDES STEAM Lab is to help students and educators develop an understanding of the Engineering Design Process and develop inquiry skills by engaging in STEAM related challenges.
