STEM Inquiry Lab

STEM Inquiry Lab

To best prepare students for our ever changing global world, IST is proud to introduce the STEM Inquiry Lab. The lab is utilized by Early Childhood- Grade 5 IST students to provide them with enriching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics focused activities. The Inquiry Lab serves as a student centered classroom that encourages collaboration between students.

In the lab, students are provided with problem based learning opportunities that allow them to develop solutions to real world problems. Instruction in the Inquiry Lab focuses on topics relevant to today’s technology centered world and incorporate the engineering process to ensure that students are able to define problems, conduct research, develop and design solutions, build and test models, and evaluate outcomes all while documenting their process.

The goal of the Inquiry Lab is to provide students with confidence in experimentation and investigation. Students learn to understand that failure is more than an option in the lab, it’s a requirement. Students learn that each time they do not succeed, they’re reinforcing their engineering and perseverance skills to become better problem solvers.

Currently, the work force is lacking candidates with adequate presentation, problem solving, and writing skills. IST STEM and IT instruction addresses these areas and ensures that students receive developmentally appropriate training to prepare them for a workforce that is expecting 1.4 million new jobs in STEM fields in the next five years alone.

The Inquiry Lab has been equipped with SmartBoard technology, a Lego wall, Lego Mindstorm and Lego WeDo robotics kits, programable Bee Bots, Makey Makey interactive circuit boards, Little Bits magnetic snap circuits, solar robots, 3D pen technology, and a Creator Pro Flashforge 3D printer.
