At Weatherstone we will be diving into STEM education from multiple perspectives. Imagine students in Art class utilizing our new iPads as cameras and then editing the photos using apps. Students will also be learning about engineering guiding principles and the scientific method in our new STEM special.
The WES Staff will be working throughout the year to define what STEM education will mean at our school. In the first quarter lessons will begin with students and staff learning about our new technologies on campus. We are also planning on inviting guest speakers to our campus that will expose students to STEM topics at an early age.
We are also beginning to plan our WES STEM Expo for the Spring of 2013 with the PTA. Here students will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in class to their families.
