STREAM Education emphasizes the progression of interdisciplinary studies in the areas of: Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Math. STREAM Education promotes higher level critical thinking skills, a deeper understanding of content material and hands-on projects.
As this year progresses students in grades K-8 will be given several opportunities to receive instruction in STREAM related activities. Below are some of the activities that will be completed during the first quarter of the 2015 – 2016 school year. More activities will be presented as the year moves along.
If you have any questions about STREAM this year, please contact the Nativity Curriculum Coordinator Mr. Christopher Gardon at email@example.com
Building STREAM – YES WE ARE
During the 2014-2015 school year Nativity of Our Lord School developed and implemented a new STREAM Education Initiative. This initiative emphasizes a higher level of critical thinking skills and deeper understanding of material in Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math.
This year students will continue to be engaged in more meaningful classroom experiences, either, in their classrooms or during their weekly visits to the STREAM Lab. Students will start their visits to the STREAM Lab in late September and will work on various lessons including the following:
PEAP – Primary Engineering Adventure Program (grades K-3)
PEAP will strengthen students’ enthusiasm and knowledge of Old Testament lessons in faith, while adapting the engineering and design process to meet the needs of our favorite Bible heroes.
Coding Craze (Grades 4-8)
This program builds off of the international Hour of Code movement. Students will learn the basic concepts of computer science with drag and drop programming.
Robotics Club (grades 7 & 8)
Named the #1 Game Changer for STREAM Programs across the country!
Created by iDesign Solutions, this program teaches students to design, construct and program their own robot while gaining valuable teamwork and problem solving skills.
Students will make dreams become a reality as they imagine, design and build cities of the future.
