What is the Osceola Mobile STEM Lab?

The mobile STEM Lab is a 45-foot, one-of-a-kind classroom that travels across Osceola County to serve fifth graders in the district's 27 Title I elementary/K-8 schools in order to connect students to the future and expose them to high-demand, high-wage jobs in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students spend 90 minutes engaged in hands-on, problem-based activities centered around a hurricane scenario by using technology, such as tablets, microscopes, thermometers, multi-meters, and other instruments in order to finish their challenge. This one-of-a-kind solution places the district at the forefront of a progressive delivery system for STEM Lab education on wheels. Implementation began in December of 2015.

How will the Osceola Mobile STEM Lab be used?

The Mobile STEM lab services fifth graders in our district’s Title I schools. The mobile lab visits each school for 2-4 days schools during the school year. Prior to each school visit, the classroom teachers and students are provided with support and materials needed for a successful experience. Elementary STEM and CTE (Career and Technical Education) curriculum areas collaborated to design integrated, standards-based instruction for each STEM-based activity.

As part of our outreach to parents and the community, a STEM Family Engagement night is held at each school in collaboration with the Orlando Science Center, along with various community events the Mobile STEM Lab has already reached over 26,000 people.
