STEM/STEAM week encouraged exploration, inquiry, and curiosity!
The secondary students were given challenging projects to develop throught the week in their Math, Science, and Arts classes. Students created a model based on previous research, they tested out the model with different materials, and at the end of the week they had a final draft. Grade 6 created a robot hand, Grade 7 did a mountain tunnel challenge, Grade 8 an insulated box, Grade 9 painted a food menu, Grade 10 studied landfills, Grade 11 explored natural dyes, and Grade 12 designed a rocket model.
For Lower school, the students were inspired Piet Mondrian artwork, created a catapult with popsicle sticks, practiced coding at code.org, learned about the use of scales, and learned about dinosaur fossils. We also had the honor of receiving robotedhn, a company that is specialized in robotics. They showed the children how a robot works. Also, we had the visit of UNITEC students (Mechtronics career), and they made a presentation of a real robot hand and its connection with the brain. It was a busy week, but it was really fun!!
