Welcome to the STEAM Lab. Redwood Preparatory STEAM Lab is a place for students to learn, explore and create. Students use the design process to study the STEAM concepts of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Most projects are taught in a hands-on, project based learning style.
My website is updated with new activities each Wednesday evening. Activities follow along with in-class units.

Hi! I'm Lori Head. I am the STEAM teacher at Redwood Prep. In 2018, we started the STEAM Lab. I have to admit it is my dream job. I love helping the kids learn new things and seeing their excitement about their world. My classroom in often loud, always a bit messy and full of fun and learning.
Build a Hand Pollinator
Watch this video about making a hand pollinator. Then, design your own hand pollinator. It does not have to be a bee, but can be anything you can imagine.
Remember your creation will have to have someway to collect the pollen and a way to move from flower to flower.
-- Decide how you will make your hand pollinator. Draw out your plan on a piece of paper. Make sure you have labels.
Think about these questions:
What will use to make it?
Where will the pollen be collected?
How will your creation move from flower to flower?
--Build your pollinator.
-- Test your hand pollinator. Does it seem like it will work? What could you do to improve your design?
Be Creative! Have fun!
