ABOUT THE STEAM BUS
The STEAM bus is a custom designed, full-size school bus capable of traveling to all CPS schools as well as after school programs. This lab provides students with easy access to incredible technology that may not be available in their home schools.
WE BELIEVE IN A UNIQUE AND CUSTOMIZED EXPERIENCE FOR EACH AND EVERY STUDENT.
The bus is an integral part of the “Makerspace” movement found in many of CPS elementary school media centers. A Makerspace is put simply “a place where makers can envision a project, find an expert, and create something.” It gives students a space for creation and exploration in an encouraging, safe place that allows for tinkering, failure, and creativity. Thus the STEAM Bus is essentially a rolling Makerspace for those projects/activities that might be too costly or difficult to fund in individual elementary schools.
