Description: The LEAP Academy Fabrication laboratory was opened in the fall of 2012, when the School’s STEM building was also opened. It was established by the collaborative efforts of a team of Rutgers-Camden STEM Faculty, the Community Leadership Center and the LEAP Academy University Charter School. The FABLAB, as it has come to be known by all, focuses on the creation and implementation of innovation. It does so, through the mixture of best practices in the context of academic/curriculum piloting and hands-on contribution in STEM areas to motivate students’ interest in said fields. Such partnership provides an excellent opportunity to develop, refine and test a comprehensive STEM curriculum that can be delivered across grade levels by utilizing a problem based/hands-on approach, where students can create something needed to continue their project, not only enhances traditional teaching in STEM, but also provides students with the experiential element that resonates so within the professional strata in these fields.
