2009 BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

STEM Programs

 

 
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Program
To provide students with more opportunities for hands-on learning in the areas of math and science, All Saints utilizes three programs in partnership with Lego Education. The purchase of equipment for this initiative was made possible through the Annual Fund.

  • Grades K, 1 and 2: More to Math – A hands-on approach to problem solving that encourages collaboration, higher-level thinking, and real-life connections.
  • Grade 3: Simple Machines – A hands-on approach that reinforces math and science skills through the design and building of models as an introduction to engineering.
  • Grades 4-5: WeDo’s – A hands-on approach that integrates STEM knowledge with language arts as students work together to find creative solutions for problems and to create structures using digital technology.
  • Middle School: Mobile Lab (Chromebooks) – Thirty-five Chromebooks and a mobile cart have arrived and will be configured in the weeks ahead. The Chromebooks are used by students throughout the school in support of differentiation of learning, online assessment, and for further integration of technology and learning, particularly in the math and science programs. Our 7th and 8th grade students will continue to learn Vex Robotics Programming within their computer classes and have an opportunity to participate in our Robotics Club.
