Do you want your little ones to become more interested in STEM?

The Learning Lab is hosting a free STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) class for kids in kindergarten through second grade.

According to staff, the STEM program integrates all the components of STEM and encourages children to pursue inquiries that are relevant to them. Using the engineering design process, children identify problems, develop possible solutions, and test and evaluate solutions.

The Learning Lab also states that the program will support children in recognizing science and math, engaging in creative thinking, improving logical reasoning skills and collaborating as part of a team.

The Learning Lab is located at 97-16 Metropolitan Avenue. You cab find tickets at www.learninglabny.com.

The city will decide on the QueensWay in a few months

IMG_1667
A decision on the QueensWay might be coming within the next few months, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio at a recent town hall in Rego Park.

The 3.5-mile stretch of land and old tracks between neighborhoods such as Forest Hills, Glendale, Rego Park, Richmond Hill, Woodhaven and Ozone Park, has been the subject of many debates in the area. So far, two projects, the High Line-inspired linear park QueensWay and the public rail service QueensRail are the frontrunners for what the space should be used for.

While the MTA is analyzing the transportation option, the city is currently trying to determine how much the Queensway would cost taxpayers, de Blasio said.

The city’s decision could come “as early as a few months from now.”

“We’re closing in on a final decision,” he added.
