CLOSURES, CANCELLATIONS, AND ALERTS
As a hands-on learning company that caters to children and families, ESTEAM Learning Labs is committed to keeping our equipment and space clean and safe. Below, you’ll find detailed information about our cleaning procedures, as well as suggestions for how you can help us keep our mobile events, camps and classes clean, safe, and healthy environment.
ESTEAM Learning Lab’s response to COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus)
March 19th, 2020
Be on the lookout next week as we will be rolling out new online learning opportunities, a lending library, Learning at Home resources to help our families and more!

We have walked alongside our community through the good and the bad for over 14 years and will continue to be here with you to face every challenge that comes our way. While how we serve our community may look a little different over the coming weeks, we will continue to find innovative ways to bring hands-on learning to you and your families.
Our mascot for our full-time private school is the Phoniex so it only makes sense to say that Together, we will rise!
During this unprecedented time as our nation works to contain COVID-19, we are committed to maintaining a safe environment and supporting the health of our community. It was shared today that as a nation we should limit social gathering to 10 people or less and Judge Gravell has asked many organizations to close to assist in “flattening the curve” of this disease. With this order in mind, we have temporarily closed our facilities at 6 pm tonight. At this time, we plan to follow ISDs and reopen Monday, April 6th at our normal business hours.

Austin Public Health has developed a five-phase plan to coordinate COVID-19 response activities.
We are currently in Phase 3: Confirmed Case(s) (No Person-to-Person spread).
We have already experienced changes to our schedule related to the COVID-19/Coronavirus at this time.
As new developments arise we will make changes to our events via this website, the ESTEAM Learning Labs Facebook page, and other social media outlets as well as our email newsletter.
CANCELLED EVENTS, CAMPS, AND CLASSES
For the health and safety of all our participants, we ask that any child or adult with elevated temperature or illness that may be contagious (such as pink eye, a cold, or the flu) not visit any ESTEAM Learning Labs Event, Camps, or Classes until they are fully recovered.
Be proactive! Take simple steps to protect your family.
- Wash your hands with soap and water frequently. It takes 15-20 seconds to get them clean enough.
- Avoid touching a person who is obviously sick.
- Avoid touching your own eyes and face (viruses can transmit from our hands into our bodies).
- Please cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. Remember to cough and sneeze into your elbow (the “vampire sneeze“) or into a tissue, not into your hand.
Deep cleaning takes place of our equipment in between classes, camps, and events. We do our best to clean and sanitized all items.
