My students in Colorado always want to try the new thing and push forward to gain a better understanding of their learning. They are all a part of STEM learning and projects everyday in every subject. I see my students every single week, and the personal and creative growth that I see is astounding. Each week students want to know what new topic they will learn, experience and master.
These Longmont students love to create, build and design; always reaching for the next level.
Our students attend a Title 1 school with all students receiving free or reduced-price lunches and many students classified as second language learners. In addition, several students have experienced trauma due to situational poverty and its effects. Despite these challenges, our creative students wanting to experience new challenges and master them.
This year in our Research Lab (Library), students will engage in self-selected learning paths. Learners at all grade levels will explore logo and badge design, illustration and writing, and construction and architecture careers.
In each learning path, students will pose questions, conduct research, analyze information, practice newly acquired skills, and create a final project.
We plan to share these projects with families via Seesaw, Ceran, and Northridge social media pages, as well as in person at our end of year STEM Expo.
Our goal is for students to transfer the skills learned in the Research Lab and utilize them in the classroom. Teachers will provide students with ongoing opportunities to show their learning in creative ways and explore ways to better utilize the sets of 10 iPads in each classroom.
