A new year, and a new cohort of STEM Academy Freshmen at Skyline High School! This year, we have about 130 students in our freshmen Explorations in STEM course. These students were chosen because of their interest and dedication to the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields.
Alpine's 4th grade students and teachers are enjoying a unit using Cubelets. The unit, collaboratively designed by Christie Veitch of Modular Robotics and Axel Reitzig, Alpine STEM Coordinator, explores the following 4th grade science concepts: classification, traits and characteristics, adapatations and habitats. The tool is Cubelets, a distributive robotics system that allows students to physically explore these concepts and apply their knowledge in new, interesting ways.
