Learning Lab

The STEAM Learning Lab

The Learning Lab is a flexible event space with classroom-scale web conferencing capabilities at the Cambridge Public Library.

It features flexible furniture and laptop charging carts to support a wide range of teaching activities and events. Multiple video cameras and ceiling microphones allow instructors and peer classrooms around the globe to virtually lead or participate in courses. It is optimized for classes of about 20-25, with a maximum capacity of 50.

The Learning Lab was made possible in part by a federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant for $15,000 from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC). Learn more about the LSTA grant.
