On Tuesday, Oct. 10, Principal D’Avilar, special guests and PS 9 students and teachers celebrated the opening of the school’s very first STEAM Lab. Wtih funding support from the office of Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, the STEAM Lab will allow our students to expand their Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math learning, combined with the freer-form, risk-taking processes of the Arts, represented by the A in the acronym.

STEAM is a 21st century approach to learning. In recent years there has been a growing focus on the need to better prepare students for high school and higher education, and arm them with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful innovators in a 21st century workforce. Our new STEAM Lab will do just that!

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by Sen. Jesse Hamilton, who awarded PS 9 parent Matt Curinga with a proclamation for his involvement in making the STEAM Lab come to life. In addition, staff members of the offices of local officials, as well as Superintendent Barbara Freeman, spoke at the ceremony.

And, News12 Brooklyn covered the opening of the STEAM Lab, too! Check out the segment here.

Thanks to all of the parents, teachers, students and staff, and Principal D’Avilar, for making the STEAM Lab ribbon-cutting such a special event!
