LG Cuts Ribbon on Interactive, High-Tech Learning Space for Students

LG Electronics USA officially cut the ribbon yesterday on the LG Exploratorium, a new 350,000-square-foot, $300 million high-tech immersive learning space for area school children that promotes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and environmental education while giving students the opportunity to interact with robotics, artificial intelligence and other technologies.

Located at LG’s North American headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, the LG Exploratorium further solidifies LG’s continued commitment to the community and the region. Visitors are welcomed to the LG Exploratorium by compelling, interactive video content shown on advanced commercial displays from LG Business Solutions, including curved open-frame OLED displays and touch-screen digital signage displays.

“The LG Exploratorium is a fun, interactive, hands-on educational space for elementary and middle school-aged students to visit and learn how innovation can be used to impact people’s lives, improve productivity, and protect the environment,” said LG Electronics North America CEO Thomas Yoon. “The LG Exploratorium represents an investment in our social and economic future, and when we invest in our communities, we create a stronger society for everyone.”

The LG Exploratorium aims to inspire new generations of students to pursue careers in STEAM fields and serve as a destination for class field trips and immersive, enhanced learning experiences for students. Exhibits include an artificially intelligent robot artist, interactive digital seascape, electric vehicle drive simulator and more. LG has partnered with Discovery Education to develop age-appropriate curriculum for grades K-8 that aligns with the state’s rigorous standards.

“Our mission at Discovery Education is to prepare learners for tomorrow by creating innovative classrooms connected to today’s world. The LG Exploratorium aligns with this mission by allowing students to engage with technology while exploring STEAM-related career paths,” said Amy Nakamoto, general manager of social impact at Discovery Education. “Together, we designed engaging resources for K-8 students that enhance enrichment and integrate the hands-on Exploratorium experiences into what they are studying in the classroom. We are excited to what possibilities this opens up for students!”

“The LG Exploratorium will contribute immensely to New Jersey’s economic and education landscapes and inspire innovation among young New Jerseyans,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. “As we respond to a host of formidable challenges both today and in the future, it’s crucial that we equip the next generation of New Jersey leaders with the skills they require to build a stronger and more prosperous Garden State.”

“Any opportunity for our students to expand their learning opportunities in creative ways is a net positive for our communities. I hope that Englewood Cliffs students and students from around our great state can utilize this new facility to expand their minds and their knowledge horizons well into the future,” said U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr.

The facility, which had a pandemic opening in 2020, offers significant economic development and other benefits to Englewood Cliffs, Bergen County, and the wtate of New Jersey, having created more than 2,000 labor jobs during construction and growing local employment to more than 800.
