Timberline Pk-8 is offering a new STEM opportunity for students this year. During each monthly late start, the University of Colorado Science Discovery program will offer project- and problem-based learning opportunities. For the first session on September 7, students learned about acoustics and the human ear through experiments and simulations. Amanda Klimecki, the community schools director for Timberline who arranged the partnership, said, "They seemed to enjoy it very much, especially the marshmallow experiment!"
The partnership with CU Science Discovery offers personalized learning opportunities - students can request science topics they would like to learn about during future sessions. By popular demand, the next late start will feature inquiry projects related to crime scene investigation, including DNA and fingerprinting activities.
