School spirit is a time to gather together as a Preschool-5th Grade building and join each other as a single unity within our school.
What is a Makerspace?
Makerspaces are creative spaces where students can gather to create, invent, and learn. These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). They provide hands on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence.
DONATION OF MAKERSPACE ITEMS
~Bryan Elementary will gladly accept any of the following items~
Items can be dropped off at the Bryan Elementary School Office
Wood Craft Sticks
1st Grade Barn Dance
The STEM design process involves planning, creating, reflecting, and redesigning to ultimately create a product to solve a problem or create a product that meets particular criteria. STEM encourages students to think critically, use their creativity, and collaborate with others. Bryan Elementary is excited to offer a STEM challenge opportunity each month for students in ALL grade levels. We encourage you to collaborate with your child to complete one or more of the challenges. Please take a picture of your finished projects by October 31st and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. The pictures you send will be displayed throughout our building! If you are unable to send a picture we encourage students to bring in their completed projects and we will get that picture taken and displayed for you.
