Work in the STEAM Lab- October 2023
Various grades come into the STEAM Lab to focus on many aspects of STEAM education. Grades 3 and 4 are currently focusing on Structural Engineering, while Grade 5 is using thier knowledge of space from the Amplify curriculum to create dioramas.
STEAM in Room 3-311
Class 3-311 created towers out of candy pumpkins and toothpicks in order to learn about structural engineering. They realized different shapes and heights of a structure allow for varying levels of stability and strength. As a follow up activity students then took what they learned and created cages for their Thanksgiving turkeys after they read How to Catch a Turkey. They used what they learned about stability and strength in October to create cages that would hold a wild turkey.
Halloween 2023 STEAM Pumpkin Decorating Contest
STEAM in Room 3-303
Students in 3-303 were learning engineering vocabulary through a structural design challenge. Students during this activity learned engineering vocabulary words like criteria and constraint. Their criteria was to build a structure using only blocks and string to lift the blocks. Students constraints were they could not touch the blocks with their hands.
