Members of the broadcast club work together to report to teachers and students campus wide information. Broadcast Club film and produce recorded sessions every morning with a green screen application that allows the students to simulate a news environment. Students are in charge of writing, editing, creating, and delivering the news themselves. Members work as a team and develop such skills as creativity, cooperation, teamwork, respect, mentoring, and responsibility.

The goals of Project ACORN are to improve environmental literacy for participating PreK - 8th grade students through hands-on, inquiry-based science activities and to increase community involvement in environmental science activities by addressing plant biodiversity in the San Antonio River watershed.
Our Garden Club plants, maintains, and harvests vegetables from our vegetable garden through an after school club. We have a pollinator and waystation garden to help maintain our diverse ecosystem. We collect basic atmospheric data and enter it into the GLOBE website. We have several bird feeders and a water station to contribute to scientific knowledge of bird populations. Our Garden Club participated in a field experience at Cibolo Nature Center in November through our Project Feeder grant.
We look forward to having a Community Event in the spring to showcase all the hard work of our students and sponsors!

Robotics Club is a tuition-based after-school science enrichment program for fourth and fifth grade students. Students participate in the FIRST LEGO League global robotics competition, helping students and teachers to build a better future together.
The program is built around theme-based Challenges to engage children ages 9 to 16 in research, problem solving, coding, and engineering. The foundation of the program is the FIRST Core Values, which emphasize teamwork, discovery, and innovation.

8 Meetings, Wednesday 3:00 - 4:00 , February 5th - April 1st
Research has shown boys and girls are equal in abilities but do differ in interest and confidence within STEM fields. Girls and boys take same classes in high school and do well, have similar rates in bio sciences, but far fewer women go into science and engineering, mathematics, and technology. (Perez-Felkner, 2017).
We created STEM Sisters' because we believe there is a lower self-efficacy in females with STEM fields.
Perhaps by isolating girls, we can nurture enthusiasm and confidence for STEM fields. The way we model the STEM Sisters club is by incorporated girl themes into our meeting atmosphere and activities. We use researched based Engineering in Elementary Curriculum.
