STEM Fun in the Lower School

Through STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, our students have the opportunity to engage in learning that improves problem-solving skills, creativity, mental alertness, teamwork and collaboration. This year, more than ever, our students are benefiting from re-imagined STEM experiences that go beyond the traditional classroom setting.

Last week, our Lower Schoolers took to the Forest for their STEM lesson with Lower School Digital Learning Specialist Chris Shriver. First Grade placed color swatches in their journal and explored the outdoors to match their swatches with objects found outside. Fourth Grade put their green thumbs to work as they planted fall vegetables in the Outdoor Classroom garden!
