What is STEM?
It is practicing what real scientists do.
It is an experience that encompasses Science concepts, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
It is where students will learn "How to Learn".
It is where students will become better Science citizens.
It is a place where it is safe to take risks and learn more from what we do wrong than what we do right.


Students will earn a "+" or "-" mark on their report card for STEM class. To receive a "+" a students must meet expectations by consistently completing their work, cooperating with their partner, and being safe in the classroom. If a student receives an "-" parents will have been notified with a consequence form from Ms. Jozaitis.

If you ever have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
 

This week in class

Monday
Third Grade: Students are engineering the canopy of a parachute by connecting gore patterns. Then students will measure the shrouds or strings with each group member having a different length. Students will test their parachutes to determine which is the best shroud length will allow for the best float down to the ground.

Tuesday
Fourth Grade:Now that the students have engineered and tested their catapults they will improve their computer skills using Power Point to communicate their data and reflections.

Wednesday
Fifth Grade: Students are engineering the mousetrap car. They will use torsion to create the potential energy and test for the average velocity of the car across 3 meters. Other challenges will be to test the velocity of the car with varying weights placed on the car and testing the car's velocity across different terrains.
