Let it Snow! Most 8 - 10 year olds know how to make the best out of a snow covered field. Recess this past week was embraced by many and there were a lot of smiles seen on the playground.
West School Students worked cooperatively to generate ideas and prototypes of devices to help reduce food waste. This S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) activity was carried-out in our Innovation Station. The challenge, or objective of this activity, is to design a new invention that will reduce food waste in the West School Lunchroom. First, the students brainstormed their product. Secondly, they worked together to draw the concept. Finally, the students were given access to a set of supplies that included construction paper, aluminum foil, cardboard, paper towel tubes, pipe cleaners and an iPad to do research. Not all classes have rotated through this S.T.E.A.M. activity. We are in the process of scheduling.
What beautiful weather for this year’s Halloween!
