Students at a local elementary school have a new way to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math, or S.T.E.M. Reeves Elementary in Long Beach held a ribbon cutting for its newly converted S.T.E.M. lab. The S.T.E.M. program helps students learn through a variety of hands on projects. Teachers at the school say this type of learning is important because it gets students thinking outside of the box and gets them interested in science.

Jill Lipski, a first grade teacher at Reeves Elementary, says, "This type of education needs to start with the smallest children. Children are born engineers. They play with blocks, they build, they discover, and they do that naturally, and so we just need to encourage them to keep learning in that way." Liam Sartin, a third grade student at Reeves, says, "They would get a bag and then they would open the bag and in it would be a piece of technology and technology is something that solves a world problem." This S.T.E.M. lab was made possible by donations from Ingalls Shipbuilding and Climb C.D.C.
