STEM Infusion

Starting this week, all students in grades K-5 are going to put that vision into practice as we launch our STEM Infusion Units. Each grade level will start with a story from our Wonders Literacy series and infuse STEM activities into their literacy instruction. Each grade level will be posed with a problem and the students must solve that problem through a Design Challenge. This two-week unit will take place January 22 through February 01, 2019. Middle School students will put our STEM vision into practice through STEM elective courses and will use the Design Challenge format in all content area classes. We will also partner with Project Lead the Way (PLTW) to receive further training and resources for the teaching of STEM in grades 6-8. Two Middle School teachers will receive PLTW training during the summer of 2019.
