The STEM lab facilitates at Colonies North promotes the learning experience by encouraging exploratory problem-solving using the 4 C’s collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Every student in K-5 will experience hands-on problem-based learning, engineering, robotics, and coding projects throughout the year.
Students use blended learning in differentiated inspiration stations in which collaborative teams have choices such as building roller coasters and robots, creating 3-D structures, and inspiring each other through creative play, with the emphasis on social and emotional engagement.
Students are also encouraged to use technology throughout the year to analyze and solve real-world problems. Students can choose which activities inspire their interests and encourage them to think outside the box.
