Alpine Elementary’s IB-STEM Student Leadership team met this past Wednesday with Mrs. Marsolek and Mr. Reitzig in the STEM Design Lab. The team, which includes 25 students from 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, reviewed what they had learned about IB and STEM, then discussed what it means to be a leader for a school and community and how to effect positive change through this leadership. Students considered how the IB-PYP Action Cycle naturally connects with the design thinking model Alpine uses in its STEM programming, and how both can help them solve problems or make improvements.
The team finished its meeting by brainstorming, or ideating, various problems to solve or opportunities to improve at Alpine Elementary. They excitedly await the next meeting when they will narrow their focus to three to four key interest areas and begin fashioning original, student-driven plans for addressing these areas.
