First grade students enjoy getting their hands dirty! We are working towards our STEM initiative. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The kids are the ones in charge of their own learning and teachers take a back seat to facilitate their thinking.
This October third grade students put their engineering skills to the test by constructing pumpkin catapults. Students worked in cooperative groups to construct their catapult using popsicle sticks, plastic spoons and a rubber band.
