STEM Club

Western Elementary 2015-2016

What is it?

Starting August 24th, 20 interested kids from Western are going to start planting and gardening around the school. We have a small beds and projects around the school grounds to maintain. STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, so we will use all of the above to learn how the environment works. Also, we will let the kids plan some projects of their own. The club meets on Mondays from 2:30 until 3:30 and you will need a ride home.

Coding

In 2016, the Club will change into a coding club. We will learn how to code through code.org.
