When students leave science class, especially in middle school, they should be excited to continue their science education. In our diverse community of learners, our science department has been striving to create a STEM program that challenges and engages students and leaves them with the drive to keep learning.
Our students are hungry for science that is hands-on, authentic, challenging and fun.
With learners from all socioeconomic groups, diverse backgrounds and learning styles, hands-on science is the thing that can reach them all. They flourish when they can truly take charge of their learning.
Hands-on STEAM learning allows students to engage in the material in a way that makes a impact for years to come. The best way to learn about circuit building and electrical engineering is for students to have the opportunity to build functional circuits.
In this STEAM project, students will create cards that light up when closed based on unique circuits they have designed and built.
Inside the cards they will print poems they have written in English/Language Arts as the culmination of a cross curricular unit on identity. Students will be encouraged to be creative and create a card that reflects their personal identity resulting in a project that requires personal reflection and engaging STEAM learning.
