Gannon Mobile STEM Lab Engages expERIEnce Children's Museum Mini Makers Summer Camp
Children learning from the Gannon Mobile STEM Lab
Gannon University's Mobile STEM Lab in the College of Engineering and Business was on the road this month. This time, Gannon students brought drones, activities and simulators for the children - ages 5-10 - to experience and fly.
Prior to collaborations like this, Gannon's GUBotDev spearheaded a 10-month project transforming an old RV into a cutting-edge mobile STEM Lab. GUBotDev started the project with the purpose of taking STEM education on the road to local Erie schools to provide outreach to the community and inspire the next generation of innovators, some of whom were on hand when the team brought their educational experience to the Children's Museum this summer.
The mobile lab is equipped with digital soldering stations and oscilloscopes in a dedicated electrical space, 3D printers and computers with drone simulation software.
Erie's Children's Museum's week-long Discovery Camps include hands-on, interactive experiences.
