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 exploring magnets and their properties in preparation to assemble their MagLev cars. Once the engineering is done students will test their vehicle and calculate the velocity. As an extra challenge third graders will redesign their car 2 more times to increase its speed.

Tuesday
Fourth Grade:Students have been engineering their Eco Wind Gen. On the first test they are redesigning the blade pitch to increase the speed of the propeller. The are using a meter to read the voltage that is created. Each redesign hopes to increase the voltage.

Wednesday
Fifth Grade: Students completed research on gliders and reviewed Engineering Expectations. Students then started engineering their Sky Eagle project with their partner. Students are cutting precise angles to create a sturdy vehicle. Students are then assembling the 3 main parts of the plane. Students will test their design for lift and distance.
