The Givens Library Launch Lab is the heart of our building. Through the Library and Launch Lab, Steger and Givens students have access to high quality research and recreational reading materials. The SGLLL features learning opportunities using iPad apps, green screen movie making, Legos, Spheros, Ozobots, Makey Makey, and a variety of coding programs including Scratch. Students in both schools receive weekly instruction appropriate for their grade levels. Apps and tech tools used with each group vary according to project needs. In addition to completing readers advisory goals, students in sixth grade focus on problem solving and media literacy. At Givens, students complete readers advisory goals, practice problem solving using design thinking and focus on various levels of computer coding.
