The Glastonbury High School STEAM Lab is a bold vision to prepare the next generation for careers and colleges in 2030 and beyond.

It will provide a flexible, modern space with state-of-the-art equipment for students to develop the skills employers and colleges are looking for today and in the future.

This exciting project will transform not only classroom space, but our curriculum as well. STEAM courses will be truly multidisciplinary, encompassing the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
