Students at Baker Elementary School demonstrated their STEAM skills  at a new SmartLab today, showcasing one of the San Diego Unified School District’s newest high-tech learning spaces before an audience of industry mentors who helped develop the facility. 

Funded with a grant of more than $140,000 from Campos EPC, an engineering, procurement and construction firm headquartered in Denver, the lab is designed to help students from kindergarten through fifth-grade produce original ideas, objects, and structures using STEAM concepts and skills.
