Program Overview

Each week of Summer Labs takes students on an exploratory journey into a variety of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) disciplines. During each STEAM module, students become experts on the theme of the week as they deepen their knowledge through inquiry-based learning and interactive experimentation. These lessons are designed to foster collaborative thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. In addition, Summer Labs provides time for free play, team building challenges, and field trips.
