Sensory Bottles in STEM Lab

During the week of April 1-5, students in STEM lab honored Autism Awareness Week by hearing the story The Girl Who Thought In Pictures, the true story of  Dr. Temple Grandin. Dr. Grandin was born with autism. As a young girl, she developed compassion for animals. She studied and become an animal scientist. She travels the world speaking about compassionate animal care and educating people about autism. STEM lab students then created a sensory calm down bottle for each classroom with supplies donated from  Fairview parents. Students will be able to use these bottles in their own classroom. The bottles offer a calming effect for students as they watch the items inside gently fall from the top to the bottom of the bottle.
