STEM - Elementary STEM

 

Elementary STEM

 

STEM education  is designed to engage students in problem solving across the curriculum.  Students engage in hands-on activities that challenges them to design, create and present their work.  The curriculum focuses on teaching students how to work with others, use various problem-solving strategies and collect and analyze information.  Elementary students will use inquiry, discovery and trial and error as pathways to new discoveries.  By fostering the confidence in each student, we create a culture of safe failure and fearless innovation.  

Elementary students in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade will be participating in STEM based instruction throughout the year, in the general classrooms.  In addition, all students in fifth and sixth grade will take part in a STEM Program once a week for nine weeks.  Students participating in this class will focus on a variety of STEM areas including forensic science, environmental science, biology, engineering, and many more.  

All elementary programs are designed to leverage the power of technology, collaboration, creative thinking and critical thinking to spark interest in STEM and learning at an early age.  

 

K-6th Grade Elementary Program

All students will receive STEM lessons and projects in their homeroom throughout the school year.
