Early in the year, we had a two hour late start for teacher professional development. During this time, all the third graders worked in groups to complete several S.T.E.M. challenges. One of these challenges, involved designing a strong chair that would help students in the back of the room see the teacher. Here are some of the teams and their designs.
Before Christmas break, we were able to participate in a S.T.E.M. festival. Many area businesses came and explained how they used science, technology, engineering, and math at their work place. The kids truly enjoyed this experience!
