Euclid’s Early Learning Fab Lab offers an experience where its youngest learners can be creative, invent, explore and develop important inquiry skills. Designing, building, tinkering, engineering, and coding will enable young learners to build a deeper understanding of math and language skills that will help promote success as they enter kindergarten. Out-of-school open lab sessions will allow children and parents to explore concepts learned in school. The lab will also support educators and pre-service teachers wishing to increase their digital fabrication skills for implementation into their curriculum.
In the lab, an age-appropriate version of the engineering design process will help children become designers. A variety of low- and high-tech tools and activities encourage children to learn logical problem-solving skills essential to programming simple robots and to use these computational thinking skills to solve problems in coursework as well as in their lives. Euclid Schools is proud to partner with TIES, the Design Partner for the new Euclid Early Learning Center Fab Lab. When designing this space, our team’s vision was to become a local hub of lifetime learning, workforce expansion, and community engagement.
