2021-2022 Class Leaders


The D39 Education Foundation thanks the parent volunteers who lead our LAB39 Enrichment Classes!

They generously share their time and expertise in science, math and engineering with our students during their 8 weeks together.


LAB 39 is Coming Back!  Parent Volunteers Needed!

LAB 39 After-School STEM Enrichment will return after Thanksgiving for 5th-8th grade science-lovers in D39!  All classes are taught by dedicated parent and community volunteers.  No prior teaching experience is necessary; just bring your love for science!

Past hands-on, interactive classes have included: Aerodynamics, Tower and Bridge Building, Mystery Architecture, Matter Matters, Circuit City, Solar System, Disease Detectives, Sports Physiology and more!

The D39 Educational Foundation will also offer all leaders one free class for one student in their household as a small token of appreciation for their time.

If you are interested in leading a class, please complete the survey through the link below to indicate which courses might be of interest to you, and what days/times you are available.


Class registration for student participants will take place in late-October. Stay tuned!
