My Students

Our community offers a Saturday Academy to grades k-6th. Students are able to attend on Saturday to recover attendance and receive additional educational support.

In the past students would avoid Saturday School.

However since we now have science theme students are interested in attending and exploring new concepts and expanding their academic skills. We also have developed a new name for Saturday School which is now called Super Steam Academy or StemCraft. The average attendance has increased by more than 100%.

My Project

We have rebranded our Saturday Academy to a Saturday Steam Academy. Previously students hated going to Saturday school, however most recently we have developed an exciting program that students want to attend. However to keep students engaged we need more technology and hands on activities for students.

Students will be able to use chromebooks and other technology to further understand their environment and to practice necessary academic skills.

At a recent session students used different recipes to make slime and discovered how different recipes affect the viscosity and texture of the end product. Students need hands on activities to spark inquiry and promote knowledge retention.
