Technology and S.T.E.M. Lab
Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten
Our Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten students are learning how to use a growth mindset and work with others. We practice building new things and working through the frustrations when it doesn't go our way. We also learn to be patient and take turns using materials.
Students start to learn pattern recognition and order of operations as a precursor to our coding lessons through various computer and hands on games. We play many critical thinking games together to get our brains working in different ways. Students also learn to use a one-click mouse vs a touch screen.
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
Students are building on various critical thinking skills each year. We also use S.T.E.M. stories to reinforce what we're learning. Our S.T.E.M. library continues to grow each year and students LOVE the books we incorporate.
We begin to code in Kindergarten and advance programs as we grow in understanding through 5th grade. Students are also practicing keyboarding skills, creativity challenges, and thinking outside the box.
We work through a simplified version of the engineering design process and the importance of planning and brainstorming before diving into creating a prototype. We have tons of fun!
