The first day of STEM summer school on June 16, 2014 was a big success at Timberline PK-8. Students explored what the study of science includes and created visualizations of their learning. They participated in team-building design challenges, such as creating the tallest spaghetti and marshmallow tower and cup stacking using a device made of only 4 pieces of string and a rubberband.
The Lit Lab at Indian Peaks has been looking for ways to incorporate engaging writing activities into their daily work. Students and teachers hung an interactive bulletin board in the hallway to encourage students, parents, and families to document their "I Wonder..." Participants fill out a small form and drop it in the drop-box (a Kleenex box stapled to the wall). Lit lab students choose a topic of their choice to research and answer via Chromebooks.
