What is S.T.E.M.
S.T.E.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. While there is no "A" in S.T.E.M., art is another piece that will be incorporated in our lessons as design is a crucial part of creating.
I look forward to working with your Bulldog/s and helping them learn through hands-on projects. In our class, students will have the chance to, as Ms. Frizzle used to say, "take chances, and make mistakes," without worry. The ultimate goal will be the learning and how sometimes we may have to try a few times before our plan "works".
Your student/s will attend S.T.E.M. as part of our Discovery Time Rotation, along with Art, Music, and P.E.
We are on an A/B year schedule to avoid students doing the same projects/activities 2 years in a row.
Our department has restructured our curriculum just a little bit. This will allow us to focus on specific career explorations at each of the grade levels. Our goal is to familiarize students with a variety of careers during their time in elementary school with the hope of sparking interest in future endeavors.
Below are some of the careers students will learn about this year:
Kinder: Civil Engineering, Health Science, Coding, Robotics
1st Grade: Environmental Engineering, Coding, Robotics
2nd Grade: Aerospace/Flight Principles, Structural Engineering, Coding, Robotics
3rd Grade: Mechanical Engineering, Forensic Science, Manufacturing/Production-3D printing, Coding, Robotics
4th Grade: Manufacturing Design, App/Game Development, Design Pre-Construction, Coding, Robotics
5th Grade: Cybersecurity, Electrical Engineering, Health Science, Alternative Energy, Coding, Robotics
