After months of planning, preparation, and work we are happy to invite students into our brand new STEAM Lab at Parsons. Students will have access to a laboratory type of environment where they can conduct experiments and simulations in a controlled environment. Students will be given real-world problems that they will need to design solutions for and then build. We will also be connecting what we do in the STEAM Lab to real-world careers and opportunities beyond high school.
In the STEAM Lab students will have access to 6 design stations, each with a rolling whiteboard table, 6 stools, and a computer connected to a 40” Television mounted to the wall. This is where students will be designing their projects in different 3D design softwares. Once students have completed their designs they will move to the construction side of the room where they will bring them to life using many different tools and materials. If they cannot find a specific material that they need for their project then they can use one of the 3 Makerbot Replicator+ 3D printers that we have to make the part. The students at Parsons are thrilled to be a part of the new STEAM Lab.
