Discovery Hall

In the fall of 2017 St. Mary School added a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) lab to the Media Center wing. The Discovery Hall dream was realized through the generous donations of our extended community. Hands-on learning stations, created by our teachers and the SMS Stem Coordinator, provide activities which hone critical thinking and problem-solving skills in interdisciplinary projects. Providing a way to incorporate 21st century learning skills: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, was the catalyst driving the creation of the Discovery Hall.

The interactive activities include Coding for both Legos and Vex, Crime Scene detection, 3-D pens, 3-D Printing, a LEGO Construction Zone, Marble Wall, and more.

A newly created Space Tech & Robotics Lab offers students a place where they are able to collaborate, engineer, and utilize skills for innovation and critical thinking. Each activity is created individually for the appropriate grade level.
