Cosmic Connection

We are Out of This World!!

Our New 3D Printer has Arrived!

Thanks to a private donor, we just received a new 3D printer and 7 new chromebooks computers! Today during morning liftoff, I showed our students a video of a dog who was born with deformed legs. Thanks to the work of a 3D printer, they were able to create prosthetics for the dog to walk! http://www.vocativ.com/news/267041/3d-printing-derby-prosthetics/

We can't wait to see what our students create from our 3D printer at Camacho!

STEM in Action!!

As we continue building our STEM Culture at Camacho Elementary, teachers are continuing to learn and grow through additional professional development and resources! We are learning how the 4 C's (creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication) are integrated into our lessons to make learning more relevant and engaging!

Science Night at Camacho!

Austin Planetarium will be bringing the stars (and trained astronomers) to us on Wednesday, January 13, 5:30pm - 7:30 pm. We will also have UT Space Consortium bringing moon rocks and meteorites reserved from NASA! We have many other science stations, so please join us for a night of fun and learning!
