Galm Elementary along with all the other elementary and middle schools form teams of 10 and are challenged to develop a solution to a real world problem around them. There are qualifier events at the end to test the teams project design, Core Values, robot design and programming. Students who would like to be part of the Robotics team for the season have to submit an application in order to be selected. Attached to the application is a written paper from the student with an explanation on how they can contribute to the team and their solution to the real world problem. This is an after school program that is guided by a teacher coach. Good Luck!
Marathon Kids is a Grant-based program, sponsored by NIKE. The program is for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at any fitness level. Kids set their goals and track their progress on a journey to complete four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the running club season. They run, walk, (or skip!) one lap at a time, one day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed. They learn how to fuel their bodies so they can run faster, better, longer. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at milestones along the way. They have a network of dedicated adults showing them how it’s done, and most importantly, a motivated and inspiring coach supporting them every step of the way.
4th and 5th Grade

STEAM Team is a tuition-based club encouraging third grade students to use their creativity while designing and solving engineering challenges. The team creates Rube Goldberg machines, which are fun, yet complicated, humorous machines that perform a simple task. Students enjoy seeing their ideas come to life!
