We are thrilled to announce that Lowe’s has awarded the Landis Elementary funding for the Sky High Tech Lab. Our grant application was based on a PBL in which a group of fifth grade students redesigned an older space into a new 21st century STEM lab . We look forward to sharing the Sky High Tech Lab with the Rowan-Salisbury and Landis communities. The Sky High Tech Lab was designed by student, for students. It will incorporate elements of computer science, such as coding, green screening and robotics.
The Sky High Tech Lab will be a space in which students can come to explore robotics, learn basic coding skills, try new technologies and collaborate, all while learning 21st century skills. We anticipate that in the future, this space will house a robotics team, a coding club and other adventures as we personalize the instruction in this space to student’s interests. We expect that this project will be completed and ready for students by the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year.
Our school and community will greatly benefit from this grant. We wish to thank our friends at Lowe’s for generously supporting this important project,” said Kelly Crews, the Instructional Technology Facilitator for Landis Elementary.
