Class Description

In this class, students will use science, technology, engineering and math in a hands on approach to problem-solve different tasks. For example, groups of students work together to design a boat from nothing but tin foil. Each boat will then be tested to see how many marbles it can hold before making it sink and outcomes will be discussed. Each challenge encourages student creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills. Students will also strengthen language arts skills by recording notes and written reflections throughout the process. Weekly in-class projects will come from Applying The Standards: STEM.
