STEMify Your Pumpkin Contest

Maker Style

IDEA Studio kickoff!

Our IDEA Studio opened for classes last week! We are so excited to see students creating and problem solving in fun ways! We wanted to have families join in the fun at home.

Fall Pumpkins- with Maker Flair

Get out your buttons, hot glue gun, paint, craft supplies and dare I say- maybe even some tech gadgets?! Let's take those pumpkins from ordinary to extraordinary, and have the kids learning with their hands while we are at it! So who can show us the most amazing pumpkin? Does it pop with springs? Does it go bump in the night?

Let's MAKE something awesome!

COE is having its first STEMify Your Pumpkin contest! We are asking families to create STEM related pumpkins that embody the Maker spirit. What should you do?


  • Create a pumpkin with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) qualities
  • Involve the whole family and have fun with hands on learning
  • Bring your completed pumpkin to school 10/24 ready to be judged @ 7:40am

What do I win?

COE is starting a new tradition. We will have an IDEA (Inquire, Design, Explore, Action) trophy displayed in the case by the the outside entry cafeteria doors. Each time someone wins an IDEA contest that we run, your name will be added and displayed on the trophy shelf for all to see.
