STEAM Parent Night
The Star Reach students at Glade Elementary are buzzing with excitement about their new STEAM Cart and the amazing projects they have made with it. STEAM stands for Science Technology Engineering Art and Math. The cart contains over 15,00 components that are used to solve engineering and scientific challenges. So far, the students have created hydraulic arms that can pick up and restack cups, electric cars capable of climbing over obstacles, race cars propelled by electric motors, fans, and kinetic energy, as well as "bots" that wiggle and scribble. Their teacher, Mrs. Williams, says "The hardest thing about teaching the STEAM lessons is keeping the students quiet. They get so excited when their ideas work that they cant help but cheer out loud! Mrs. Williams can't help but get as excited as they are because what they are doing is very hard. They are truly using critical thinking skills and problem solving skills through the engineering process of investigating, proposing, creating, and evaluating. These activities have motivated kids who never thought they could be engineers, designers, or inventors." These are the kind of lessons that can change attitudes and create a lifelong love of the sciences and arts. Students showcased their projects and explained the design for each to parents and community members.
