STEM1Each year fourth graders work in teams to create a STEM tower. This is where the student’s creativity meets with their learning. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This simple task helps the students develop an understanding of technological design along with identifying a simple problem and possible solutions. Students are given 50 index cards along with 12 inches of tape. Nothing else is used except for their previous experiences, team work, and ingenuity. They must create a tower at least 20 inches high that will hold "Harry, the Birthday Spider" for 30 seconds. Although not all towers stood successfully, all students were successful in the task.  For more photos click here.
