Gotham Avenue School kicked off the 2022-23 school year by unveiling its new STEAM Lab.

Created under the direction of Assistant Principal Robert Cavaliere, the STEAM Lab promotes collaboration and exploratory learning by inviting students to apply technology, science, math and engineering skills in a 21st-century learning environment.

The lab is equipped with various new technologies, including 3D printers, drones, coding robots, virtual reality headsets, digital microscopes, a Makerspace, literacy-based STEAM challenges and a variety of other building materials. By creating opportunities for students to engage with these technologies, the STEAM Lab will assist students in building upon the skills of problem solving, critical thinking and innovation, while enhancing creative thinking.

“The world we live in is changing, and we must keep pace with it. STEAM education changes society by offering learners a new mindset and skills valued heavily in professions of the future,” Mr. Cavaliere said.

On June 2, Gotham Avenue School held a Title 1 Family Engagement Event co-sponsored by Gotham’s PTA.

During the event, grade K-2 families gathered in the gymnasium, while grade 3-6 families gathered in the cafeteria. They were able to rotate from station to station, learning, creating and experimenting with fun activities and engaging materials. At each station, teachers facilitated activities that targeted important academic skills in literacy, math or science, such as Battleship, book tastings, found poetry and Jenga.

The objective was not only to provide a fun family event, but to also have parents/guardians leave with hands-on materials and practical knowledge of how to support learning at home.

When asked about her favorite part of the event, third grade student Kyley Leveille said, “Spending time with my family.”
