STEM at Underhill
During our October 2nd professional development day teachers participated in a discussion on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The discussion centered around what STEM is and what it is not. It is not science, math, technology and engineering as separate entities. It is about bringing science and math together through the engineering process while utilizing a variety of technology to accomplish a challenge or problem.
Here at Underhill our theme surrounding STEM is to be “Curious like Curious George”. We want to inspire curiosity and make sure our school is a safe place for that to occur. Each class is beginning this theme with a Curious George problem solver lesson. Students will brainstorm with their teachers about the characteristics of a good problem solver. They will utilize these characteristics throughout the school year as they participate in a variety of STEM challenges.
At Underhill we are going to be curious like Curious George all year!
