Project Focus Areas
STEAM (aquaponics, engineering, rocketry, graphic design, creative arts, robotics, recycling, origami, hydroponics, building challenges using measurement)
The goal of this project was to expose elementary students to learning opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM). During the STEAM term at each school, programming was intentional with a theme and specific content area. All project-based learning clubs were offered for 6 weeks. Offerings included iMovie, aquaponics, mural making, science challenges, drones, coding, robotics, creative art through recycling, aerospace, engineering through GEO blocks, magnetic kits and more. Community partners enhanced the offerings and provided additional expertise, resources and materials.
