Learning Is Full STEAM Ahead at New Prospect Elementary 

 

Student learning at New Prospect Elementary School will be “STEAM”ing up with the addition of a new lab thanks to a Lowe's Toolbox for Education Grant. 

Students at New Prospect Elementary School will soon have access to a new STEAM lab after receiving a $5,000 Toolbox for Education Grant from Lowe’s. This lab will be designed to inspire integrative learning in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. 

STEAM labs generally combine elements found in traditional science labs, wood shops, computer labs or art rooms. The addition of this interactive lab will focus on building creative and innovative problem solvers through accommodating a wide range of activities accessible by all grade levels at NPE. 

“I am so proud that we have received this grant as it validates our continued commitment to the Profile of the SC Graduate.  We look forward to providing multiple opportunities for our students to become well-rounded citizens," says NPE Principal, Mrs. Jodi Wright. As a South Carolina School of Excellence in Arts Education, NPE continuously looks for ways to ignite learning while preparing students for the 21st century.
