LEND A LAB PROGRAM

STEAM Milwaukee's Lend a Lab program seeks to impact the highest leverage science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics learning opportunity, students' daily classroom experiences, by providing materials that teachers can use in their classrooms as well as lesson ideas and community support.


Creativity, imagination, problem-solving, and the ability to learn and grow are equitably distributed. Resources are not. We're on a mission to change this.

MODEL

STEAM Milwaukee’s Lend-a-Lab program is a resource library and educator learning hub to support hands-on STEAM activities. We rent out hands-on kits (e.g., classroom sets of LEGO Spike Prime robots, micro-controllers, scientific probes and sensors, math activities, a portable MakerCart) for 1-6 weeks at a time along with lesson plans, slides, and handouts. We maintain, organize, deliver, and collect the materials, saving schools and teachers time and money and reducing the environmental impact of electronics-based kits. We also offer educator learning opportunities (e.g., professional development workshops, individualized consulting) to help educators feel confident using these materials with their learners.
