For the second week of STEAM work, students experienced all of the STEAM concepts at work in an activity that didn't seem to include all five of the concepts, making an origami frog.
Week one - steam interconnectedness
| || |
For the first week of STEAM-Work, all students learned about the interconnectedness of the STEAM concepts. They discussed the ways that learning through Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math could come together to prepare them for a life in which nearly half of them will work in a career that does not exist today.
For the 2017-2018 school year, Simpson Middle School has implemented a STEAM-Work modified block schedule. The schedule reduces transition time on Tuesday and Wednesday in order to add a 90-minute block to be used for STEAM activities. This space will be used to document those activities.
