STEM is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics and aims to foster inquiring minds, logical reasoning, and collaboration skills.

DK and Kindergarten have really enjoyed learning about weather recently. They’ve learned about snow, rain clouds and tornados. For STEM, they observed and recorded weather in a jar.

1st Grade started to learn how to weave! They started with paper and will eventually work up to using yarn. It was kind of difficult at first, but it gave them the opportunity to talk about having a growth mindset.

2nd Grade created landforms by mixing salt dough. They formed, painted, and labeled oceans, rivers, lakes, islands, peninsulas, plains, hills and mountains.

3rd Grade students had to work in groups to build a roller coaster. The roller coaster had to be built so a ball would gain enough momentum to travel a couple feet and drop in a cup.

4th Grade read "What to do with a Box?" By Jane Yolen as a class. Students were then put into groups and given a box. They were challenged with the task of creating something new and purposeful out of the box. They were given a priced list of supplies and could spend up to "$20" on the supplies for their new invention. Students were encouraged to use their imagination and think outside the box with their creations.

5th/6th grade created Drop Pom Pom Mazes. They worked as a team to create a maze with turns that a Pom Pom could successfully make its way through. The hard part was that the tubes could not connect!
