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.

A partnership between Lesley’s Makerspace and Cambridge’s Tobin Montessori has reconceptualized science activities that explore sound, light, and digital waves through making. A collaborative team of Tobin Montessori teachers and the Lesley STEAM Learning Lab led a hands-on re-creation of elementary science activities and discussed how making inspires playful learning at Lesley University’s 2017 Community of Scholars Day.
The Lesley Makerspace hosted two hands on making events as part of the Cambridge Science Festival. The festival boasts ten days of STEAM-related activities across the wider Boston area, including lectures, debates, plays, workshops, exhibits, and more.
