STEM Elementary students take on lunar exploration PBL

Fly me to the moon! 🌙 Our Elementary school students are in the middle of a PBL that takes them far from Earth! They are tasked with a problem that aerospace engineers have had difficulty with for years – how to make accurate observations in space while facing constant changes in the sun, moon and stars.
🚀 🌍 ⭐️ ☀️
Next week first grade students will be building rovers, moon craters and even doing Zoom chats with aerospace engineers about space exploration!

Great Start to Girls' Persist at STEM

We are so excited to start the Girls Persist at STEM. We had a wonderful first session and students are looking forward to embarking on the journey in leadership. We started with our “Learn-It” Phase. Thank you to all the students and Mrs. Basu and Mrs. Stewart for leading them through.

Girls’ Persist is an evidence-based STEM leadership program designed to put problems into practice while fostering an environment for girls to thrive. The program consists of hands-on learning applications and leadership methods viable for shaping self-efficacy and increasing capacity for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The program utilizes the learn-it, lead-it, and perform-it framework to assist adolescent girls with self-confidence, critical thinking skills, and decision-making while influencing overall STEM persistence.
