Come DREAM with us!

Thank You for Volunteering to Serve on the Envision Team!

Our First Planning Meeting

We are so excited to have all of you join us as we embark on this incredible opportunity and journey! The concept of integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) Education into our elementary schools is not only exhilarating, but quite necessary! Our first meeting will be a short after school introductory meeting to learn more about the project objectives and set the calendar for the upcoming meetings.

In order to maximize our time at this first meeting and to set the stage for our work, I am including 3 links that I would encourage you to peruse prior to our meeting. (Can you say "flipped" meeting?


1) STEM-It's Elementary-Why we should be teaching STEM in Elementary School

2) TedTalk-Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud

3) TedTalk-Ken Robinson: How to Escape Education's Death Valley


If Sugata Mitra and Ken Robinson inspired you and you would like to dig deeper into their message, here are two additional links.


1) Sugata Mitra- Opening Keynote from STEM Symposium in Sacramento-The Critical importance of STEM Education (This is the conference that so many of our District people attended)

2) Ken Robinson's TedTalk on How Schools Kill Creativity (This is THE most watched TedTalk ever! Almost 15 million views!!
