The Living Lab Galas are special events for showcasing all the Living Lab science/art projects of students in grades 1 through 5. The Galas provide venues for the students to complete their Living Lab yearlong real world experience. Just like scientists and artists in the field publicly present their work, our students present and speak to their work at the Galas.
