Academics in a Box Donates Its Award-Winning Groovy Lab in a Box STEM Projects to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt’s Mobile Makerspace 

Nashville, TN…

When Monica Canavan and Elaine Hansen, co-founders of Academics in a Box (Anaheim, CA), first learned about the mobile Makerspace Pilot Program at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt (Nashville, TN), they knew their Groovy Lab in a Box (www.groovylabinabox.com)

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) projects would be a super addition. As scientists, educators and parents, they understand the importance of engaging and motivating children to use their imagination, determination and inquisitive nature to learn; a mission it shares with the hospital. For children at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, many of whom have acute and chronic medical conditions which confine them to the hospital for lengthy periods, bringing a fun, hands-on learning experience to them was exactly what the doctor…and teacher ordered. So, that’s exactly what Canavan and Hansen did. They donated a supply of their Groovy Lab in a Box STEM projects to be part of the hospital’s Mobile Makerspace, which is the first of its kind in a children’s hospital setting in the nation.
