STEM AT MACDONOUGH

Big picture

Students at Macdonough School are exposed to interdisciplinary units of study that have at their foundation a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students are provided the opportunity to become independent learners and thinkers through Project-Based Learning.

All of our projects focus on the Engineering Design Process in order to solve real-world problems.

ENGINEER OF THE MONTH

Our Engineer of the Month is Fiona from Mrs. Barnes' fifth grade class. Fiona was selected as our Engineer of the Month because she perseveres, is diligent, and does an amazing job explaining her thinking and reasoning. Fiona always strives to do her best, and that is consistently reflected through her STEM-related work. She is thorough, and relates her thinking to real world experiences during each stage of the Engineer Design Process. Keep up the great work, Fiona! We will miss you next year at Macdonough.
