@ Carnegie Science Center
LIFE STEAM Saturdays were designed for male students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The students become certified in the use of all the equipment in the Fab Lab at Carnegie Science Center and have a portfolio of all of their projects at the completion of the program.
Throughout the program, participants learned how to use both the software and hardware of the Fab Lab through the completion of hands-on projects focused on engineering, design, and digital fabrication. Example projects may include The Quadcopter Challenge (students designed, built, and tested remote-controlled drones) and Spheros Mars Rover (students designed, built, and programmed roving Mars explorer vehicles)
Included in the lab:
- 3D Printers
- Laser Cutters
- Computers and Software
- ShopBot CNC milling machines
- Electronics workbench equipment, including robotics
- Mini-mill/3D scanner
- Sewing/embroidery machines

The WELLS OF LIFE
A LIFE scholar is WELL-READ
You must study to have something to say. Books open doors and allow you to have something valuable to contribute to any conversation.
A LIFE scholar is WELL-TRAVELED
You will be exposed to other cultures, people and places, and learn to celebrate diversity to ensure that everyone is respected, accepted, and appreciated. Seeing the world outside of your own community opens your eyes to a world of possibilities.
A LIFE Scholar is WELL-SPOKEN
You will develop verbal and written abilities to communicate with precision, grace, confidence, and style. You will be inclusive of an academic community that ignites a passion for learning and inspires habits of critical thinking, collaboration, and self-discipline.
A LIFE scholar Is WELL-DRESSED
You must model success and represent what is possible. When you enter the public, as a LIFE scholar, your attire should be representative of a future decision maker, servant leader, and KING.
A LIFE Scholar Is WELL-BALANCED
You will be taught to possess healthy minds that reside in healthy bodies governed by healthy values.
A LIFE scholar Is WELL-CONNECTED
You will be working in collaboration with other brothers, learning as much from each other as in the classroom. As an institutional ideal, brotherhood extends to all students, faculty, and staff. This is evidenced by the way we work and learn together and how we challenge and support each other. The goal is to achieve our most important objective, which is the making of a well-rounded man.
A LIFE scholar is WELL-LED
Faculty and staff will model success by representing what is possible, provide access to resources as a conduit of information and knowledge, facilitate opportunities by serving as a reference and means to possibility, and inspire minds to create a burning desire to achieve in LIFE.
