Grades 5-8 STEM Programming


    1. All students will have classes in Tech Ed.
      1. A new course was written for grades 5 and 6, bringing this special to grade 5 for the first time, and providing new opportunities for students in grade 6. The teacher is part of the Wilkes program cohort, and he has designed the course and curriculum in collaboration with the computer literacy teacher (also in the Wilkes course) and the librarian. This course is designed to introduce students to all four aspects of STEM.
      2. Students in grades 7 and 8 rotate through the Tech Ed courses at both grade levels. These courses were rewritten over the past few years to be more geared toward concepts around engineering.
