New Lower School STEAM Hub Encourages Creative Collaboration

0

Earlier this fall, Roland Park Country School unveiled several exciting new spaces on campus, including a recently constructed cheery and light-filled Lower School STEAM Hub. This redesigned space is adjacent to the Killebrew Library and connects the Junior Innovation Space with the new Lower School art room to fulfill Roland Park Country School’s vision of purposefully integrating each of the components of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) into the school curriculum for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

“We are focusing on every content area to pair with design challenges and projects that have a real purpose to help students extend their learning beyond the classroom in a creative and meaningful way,” said Joe LePain, the Director of Information and Innovation at Roland Park Country School.
