Glacier Hills Elementary School in Minneapolis takes hands on learning to a new level

In September, the science magnet school will open a new laboratory that combines the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. The “STEAM room” will allow students to create objects using new tools, such as a 3-D printer and laser etcher, when exploring scientific concepts.

This STEAM room really shows how arts and sciences cannot be divorced.  In today’s technologically advanced society, arts provides the tool to conquer sciences.  Congrats to Glacier Hills for providing the students with such progressive tools!
