KDL LAB Experience: STEAM

KDL LAB Experience = STEAM

STEAM is an approach to education that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. With STEAM learning, children are able to develop their brains to think in a way that allows for creativity, tinkering, problem solving, collaboration and exploration.

KDL LAB Experiences are ‭designed to help students increase their proficiency in ‭STEAM disciplines through fun activities. While library staff ‭are not experts in these disciplines, they serve as facilitators, guiding participants ages 5-10 in their KDL LAB Experience.
