With the rollout of its first mobile learning space, Lakota Local Schools will be giving parents and community members a dose of the Lakota learning experience. The Wonderbus – a former school bus transformed into a “Wonder Lab” or “STEAM Lab” on wheels – will officially roll out at Lakota’s Pi Day celebration on March 6.
“The whole idea is to extend the STEAM and Wonder lab experience beyond the classroom walls and involve parents,” said Lakota’s Director of K-6 Curriculum & Instruction, Christina French, who led the creation of Lakota’s Wonderbus. “We want to model to our families how fun and engaging it can be to learn alongside one another.”
The bus was donated by Lakota’s transportation provider, Petermann, while other costs of the transformation were supplemented by the generous donations of three local business sponsors, including Dayton Cincinnati Technology Solutions (DCTS), Performance Honda Fairfield, and Performance Kings Honda.
