Welcome to STEM Lab

Welcome to STEM Lab. STEM Lab provides problem-based learning for our students. STEM Lab students have opportunities to be problem solvers, risk takers, critical thinkers and innovators by taking positions on real world problems.  By working through a combination of learning strategies they discover the nature of a problem, understand the variables involved and gain a perspective viewpoint of those affected.  Students also participate in a number of unique field experiences every year and many industry partners/experts work side-by-side our students.
