Have you heard of SSLT, STEM student leaders, or something similar? We are actually called the STEM Student Leadership Team, and we are here to incorporate student voice into STEM decisions at our school. We are the ones who identify successes and areas for growth within our STEM Enrichment classes that TRMS students attend every day. We also give tours, write blogs (like this one), and think of ways to make STEM education better here at TRMS. If you have a STEM Enrichment that you really enjoy, you owe some credit to the members of SSLT.
The STEM Student Leadership Team (SSLT) at Northridge started holding their meetings during the month of November. More than twenty 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders met twice this month during lunch to develop empathy and begin to define potential problems and/or issues at Northridge. Students talked together about specific areas around the school, and identified people and existing/potential problems in each setting. The locations they idetified ranged from the soccer field to the front office. Issues included safety, organization, and... *gasp* ...homework!
