“This curriculum helps build the skills our children will need to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders of our future.” - Ms. Rene Perry, CCS STEM Specialist
In a STEM class, each activity or action is focused on meeting our goal or solving a challenge. With our common goal, we follow the engineering design process together. As we journey through the process of exploring, building and analyzing, students realize that there may be more than one solution to a problem. They learn to ask questions, ask for help from a peer, and form their team. They practice empathy while they assist each other and build their team. Students work through the emotions of frustration and perseverance as they deal with design changes. All of these skills will have a positive effect in their lives now and in the future. Each student transforms like a butterfly … they complete their projects and leave more self-confident and full of potential!
