Researchers from HP Labs recently taught a pair of coding classes at “STEAM LEADS,”a pilot STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) enrichment program for middle school students offered by the Cupertino Library in Cupertino, California.

 

Led by HP Printing and Content Lab senior research scientist Rares Vernica, the workshops were part of set of activities built around the subject of honey bees in which students were challenged to “bee a Superhero” by learning about the value and vulnerability of the important pollinators.

 

For the HP-led classes, all the instructional materials were built on and delivered through HP METIS, a hybrid learning platform being developed by HP Labs.
