Inspiring young minds. Building better futures.
STEAM Lab is a social enterprise that runs classes and workshops aimed at teaching kids about science, technology, engineering, art, and maths-all while having fun!
We believe that every child deserves the chance to reach their potential and have a brighter future, whatever their background.
We want to turn every child into a curious, life-long learner, and our classes and workshops bring what they learn in the classroom to life.
Our sessions introduce the basic concepts of science, engineering, architecture, and maths, and help develop communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills that will stay with them for life.

May 20: Maybe you’ve heard of STEM, but what about STEAM? And do you know the difference? What is STEM? STEM, as you probably know, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths, and there’s a growing emphasis on it in education. This is largely because there are skills gaps in science and tech that need filling as a matter of urgency. STEM learning has a lot of benefits, like teaching children how to think critically, problem solve, and work as a team which are important skills for life.
Apr 27: If your kids tell you science is boring, now would be a good time to tell them just how many things they use, or that exist in their daily lives would be impossible without scientific discoveries. From the electricity that powers their TV and computer games, to the car you take them to school in, life would be very different without scientific innovation. Here are just some of the ways we use science in every day life.
Apr 23: Not every child learns best from a text book, so it’s important that different learning styles are catered for. Otherwise, some children can feel excluded and end up not doing as well as they could. If parents understand their child’s learning style, they can choose fun ways to help them learn that suits their learning style. Do you know your child’s learning style?
Apr 16: The Scottish Government is set to look at the importance of teaching STEM to young children as part of an inquiry into the impact of STEM subjects and how successfully they are being delivered. MSPs from the Education and Skills Committee will specifically look at which STEM subjects are being taught to children aged between three and seven, how they improve their future prospects, whether teachers feel confident in teaching STEM concepts, the success of different STEM initiatives, and how best practice can be shared.
