STEM Summer School Off to a Great Start

STEM School

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. During literacy time, students played vocabulary games and explored reading, math, and critical thinking apps on the iPad while students met with the teacher in small groups or individually for reading instruction. Timberline's 5th graders even finished the day by blogging about what they learned. If today was an indication of the weeks to come, Timberline's students are in for a fun, engaging summer of learning.
