In 2018, Queen of Martyrs opened a new state-of-the-art Science/STEM Lab to better facilitate the advancement of QM students. STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem-solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real-life issues.
Queen of Martyrs partners with LabLearner to make this Science/STEM Lab possible. The experiments within LabLearner were designed to have essential scientific themes “spiral” throughout a student’s elementary education year over year. This curriculum allows students to dig deeper into a concept rather than just read about it, complete a worksheet, and take a test.
The design of the lab also assists in other areas of study. The skills used within the lab range from mathematical, reading, and writing to critical thinking and fine motor skills, providing additional educational benefits. The lab provides over 60 core experience learning labs that gives students the opportunity to use microscopes, beakers, balances, and many more science-based tools. Having a fully equipped Science/STEM Lab provides QM teachers and students the space and resources needed to allow for personalized learning and engage students of all ages, interests, and abilities.
