Where We're Wild About Learning
BALANCE MAGIC IN THE STEM LAB
Good news - our Balance Magic challenge was a huge hit! Not so good news - due to our MAP testing schedule we've been "booted out" of the STEM Lab until later in the month!
Surprisingly, students were apprehensive in approaching the designing process - we had a lot of blank stares as students waited for us to "tell them what to do". This emphasizes the importance of encouraging students to think critically - one of the main objectives in STEM education.
When we return to the Lab later this month, we'll be making curriculum connections with our Patriot Day unit; focusing on structures, along with forces and motion.
