LAB39 STEM Classes Return!
After a year off, the D39 Educational Foundation revived its LAB39 STEM class offerings. Five classes ran this year, serving D39 students in grades 5-8. Classes included Sports Physiology, Planets Near and Far, HUMANatomy, Science of Sound and Power Up! Kids and parents all provided positive feedback about the experience, and we extend a special thank-you to our volunteer instructors. Next year we hope to bring back the community open house for the kids to show off what they’ve learned. Check out these pictures and videos that we collected this year instead.
Did you know that renewable power could be the world’s top power source by 2050? In this class, you will build wind turbines and learn about solar and energy storage solutions as you harness power from the wind and the sun and learn about the future of renewable energy.
Want to jump higher and run faster? In this class, you will learn how your body works and functions, and how you can improve your overall health and sports performance.
Did you know that the tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body? In this class, you will learn about body systems, including the structure of the parts, what they do, and how they work together.
Science of Sound
Have you ever blown across a bottle’s top and wondered how that pleasant sound you hear is made? In this class you will learn about sound waves, vibrations, resonance and pitch as you build musical instruments. This class will also provide an introduction to acoustic engineering.
