Lesley STEAM Learning Lab and the Science in Education team welcomed all 6th grade students from the Argenziano and East Somerville Community Schools (Somerville Public Schools) for an interactive field trip in November. The trip was generated out of the collaborative curriculum design as part of Lesley’s Biogen grant supporting both Cambridge and Somerville school districts with STEM integration. Two Somerville science teachers, the STEAM Lab, and Lesley science faculty, Susan Rauchwerk and Nicole Weber, developed an experience that would engage students in expanding their investigation of geologic time and fossil records.
Lesley STEAM Learning Lab hosted just over 100 Lesley Summer Compass students this past week in our makerspace. True to their 2018 theme “Going Green,” campers engaged in a variety of design engineering challenges with a focus on upcycling materials, insects, plants, and alternative modes of transportation.

It’s been a jam packed year of making at the Kennedy School, with Lesley STEAM supporting maker-minded projects in each of the K-8 classrooms. Check out our video highlighting this whole school approach to innovation:
Lesley STEAM joined in another rollicking evening of making at the STEAM in Riverside event at the MLK Jr. Elementary School in Cambridge, thanks to Sharlene Yang, Coordinator of the Cambridge STEAM Initiative. K-8 students brought the idea of Hack the Dollar Store to life with outlandish electronic redesigns of dollar store items.
The Lesley STEAM Team was proud to help launch the Hour of Code Week at the Kennedy School in Somerville alongside our Kennedy partners. The week-long celebration of coding and making was marked by Somerville Mayor, Joe Curtatone, and Superintendent, Mary Skipper. View full article on The Somerville News Weekly.
