STEM start up for grades 5&6 in Science this week!
This introductory EIE activity has teams practice productive talk as they plan their design and construct a stable tower.

Problem parameters: Construct a tower "prototype" to help "bear" stay safe when flooding affects his home. Successful towers measure a minimum height of 6 inches and steadily hold the bear for 20 seconds.
Constraints: materials limited to set amount of notecards & tape

We promised some more 3D printed historical buildings. Here they are...

05/28/2019

We have been completely blown away by the skills our students have built this year!

They had fun with our Historical Building Challenge. Teams were divided between Paris and Seattle. Wrapping up our earthquake lessons, we explored their similarities through research. Each student chose their own building to design. This is where their true talent started to shine and we saw them rise up! With only two weeks to design, we cannot wait to share pictures as they print. Starbucks is the first building to print from our 7th graders. Notice the little coffee mugs on the shelf! More to come...

Learn how every individual's actions can make a big impact with Dr Jane Goodall

April 2nd and 9th!

I cannot even begin to express how her research has impacted my thought process throughout my entire life. She has been inspiring me for over 30 years. From the first moment I watched her interact with chimpanzees, I was forever hooked.

I share my inspiration by teaching my students how she protected chimpanzees and inspired people to conserve the natural world we all share. Her vision and work lives on through her global community.

"Everything is connected--everyone can make a difference." janegoodall.org

14 Books That Connect Students With Valuable Scientists' Struggles

These books would make a wonderful addition to our STEM Library. Allowing students to see the trials and failures of extraordinary scientists, supports our virtue of persistence.

kqed.org A study found that students who read about famous scientists' personal and intellectual struggles do better in their science classes. Librarians helped us put together a list of books that detail some of those struggles.

Here is a short video clip of how fast one design was able to go with a simple fan. We can't wait to measure and compare the amount of energy each design creates.

02/27/2019

The weather was no longer able to hold STEM back! Our STEM Enrichment Day explored the power of natural resources. Specifically, the power of wind!

Through the use of the Engineering Design Process(EDP), our student groups each built a working wind turbine after exploring how energy is created using wind. Each group will continue with their testing to measure exactly how much energy their designs create. They focused specifically on blade design using different materials.

We are excited to continue this process in class and through multiple grade levels. Nothing is more exciting than seeing our students work together as a strong team, building each other up, and solving real world problems.

Your List

Thank you to those who have supported my classrooms! Along with our traditional Art and Technology, I am excited to note, I will now be teaching a STEAM class with an emphasis on Nature and Art. This will be an exciting journey. I am excited for school to start next week and cannot wait for the adventure of the 2018 school year to begin!

Don’t doubt the Creator, beacause it is inconceivable that accidents alone could be the controller of this universe. ~Sir Isaac Newton

This past summer, we were blessed with the amazing opportunity to attend the first part of our three year journey with Notre Dame University’s STEM Team. Our two week were filled with intense math and science experiences that completely blew our minds! We were able to appreciate being students again by our complete immersion in physics on our very first day. WOW!
