A dynamic new STEM lab opened at Immaculate Conception Catholic Academy in Astoria in Fall 2018. Students have been thrilled to use cutting-edge equipment including microscopes, anemometers, spectrophotometers, scales, hot plates, scientific models, construction kits, digital multimeters and so much more!!! This equipment helps students to explore, problem-solve, collaborate, build, create and learn. Interactive hands-on experiments will develop inquisitive minds, logical reasoning and analytical skills. The STEM lab is just one more valuable resource added to our many opportunities for students to excel academically and socially.
“Our new Stem Lab will take science out of the books and put it in the children’s hands. Looking forward to an exciting year of exploring science ‘Hands-On’!”
— Ms. Frank, 2nd Grade Teacher
“The new STEM Lab will greatly assist our students in meeting the rigorous demands of the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). The children’s experiences with hands-on activities and team collaboration will enable them to be more successful in science and better prepared for high school & college.”
— Ms. Attard, Middle School Science Teacher
