The Verizon Innovative Learning explorer lab is an entirely new way for middle school students to discover concepts of engineering design. The explorer lab is a shared immersive learning experience that combines movie-quality video, special effects, and hands-on educational gaming to create a learning environment that gets kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) – right in the school parking lot.
Onboard a customized motor coach, students experience a futuristic research lab that transports them to extreme environments from underwater to the arctic, and even to outer space. For the 2017-18 school year, the explorer lab Mars Discovery Program lands in DC bringing students to the red planet for engineering challenges.
The explorer lab was created by Verizon Innovative Learning, the education initiative of the Verizon Foundation. We need more kids to see the world of possibilities available to them. Learn more at weneedmore.com.
