STEAM classes recognize that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills which are best developed through exposure to the arts. The STEAM curriculum offers a wide-array of hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences that will encourage learners to learn by creating, designing, inventing and producing.
Supplies needed for STEAM Class: * Pencils * Safety Glasses - Students may provide their own safety glasses or bring $5 and choose from a variety of colors. (Please make sure glasses fit well and stay put when looking down and lightly moving the head.) * One pocket folder or binder (your choice) * Work gloves (recommended for various projects). * Ear buds or headphones (optional but highly recommended).
Eye Protection: Students are required to wear at all times when in the shop environment. Students must use an APPROVED form of safety glasses or goggles. Regular prescription glasses, sunglasses and sport glasses alone are not approved eye protection. The lenses on your safety glasses must be clear.
THE STEAM-READY STUDENT:
*Thinks critically to solve problems
*Works collaboratively with team
*Shows perseverance in pursuit of solutions
*Uses effective communication skills
*Demonstrates confidence in problem solving
We will be using the 4C's as we complete Engineering Design Challenges and Projects.
