Hands-On Learning

Pendulum painting. Robotic hand creations. Circuit board music to your ears. These are just a few do-it-yourself activities that students at BISC Lincoln Park learn in and out of the classroom to build confidence, creativity, and lifelong problem-solving skills.

Welcome to the STEAM experience.

Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) play an invaluable part in helping your child to develop academic, social and personal success. 

Our school’s STEAM corridor features two science labs, an art studio, a robotics workshop, a design technology lab, and a maker space where students are encouraged to move from room to room throughout the week, learning from our highly trained staff and gathering the materials as well as inspiration to bring the do-it-yourself activities like the ones featured in our videos to life.

By combining what they know across all the subjects of STEAM, our students acquire what it takes to succeed in the 21st century and take the first step to inventing their future. 


To our students, there's more to Pendulum Painting than just a splash of color and a few laughs along the way. How about the science of gravity, forces & motion, and some good 'ol geometry? 

Watch how this activity's done then go behind the scenes to meet Morgan, Tanush, and Pat.

"Fun with Pendulum Painting"


We only have wild applause when it comes to our students building their own Robot Hand creations. Children not only learn about bone structure, but also discover how engineers can use that knowledge to build prosthetic limbs. 

See how this activity's done then go behind the scenes to meet Jacqueline and Raffi. 

"Building Your Own Robot Hand"


When our students play with Makey Makey, it's always music to our ears. This 21st century invention kit combines the art of circuit boards with makeshift conductors like violin strings or trumpets that will put a song in your heart forever. 

Check out how this activity's done then go behind the scenes to meet Avani, Dylan, and Noah.
