Smithsonian and Lenovo Offer Free STEAM Activities

3/29/2017 8:00:00 PM
The Smithsonian and Lenovo have teamed up to develop and provide free STEAM activities for students, along with teachers' guides, that combine the online Smithsonian Learning Lab and hands-on projects. The materials are available in the Smithsonian Learning Lab for educators who would like to replicate or adapt them in the classroom or in after-school programs.

As part of the joint initiative, the Smithsonian is providing training for Lenovo employee volunteers to facilitate the STEAM activities with students in schools and in after-school programs during their community outreach. A successful pilot effort with the Boys & Girls Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, led to next week's events in which they will be working with 1,500 students in public and charter schools in the Research Triangle-region in North Carolina.
