Timberline Students Kick Off a National Conference

STEM School

Timberline PK-8 was proud to host the "Real World, Right Now - The next generation of middle level education" Symposium on Thursday, October 9, 2014, hosted by St Vrain Valley Schools, The Colorado Association of Middle Level Education, and The National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform. Our students kicked off the event with demonstrations of our Kindergarten through 8th grade VEX and Cubelets robotics programs, Scalable Game Design class, Solid Works 3D printing class, and recent science and math projects. The day continued with educators and administrators from all over the country attending keynote speeches and break out sessions about innovations in middle school education such as design thinking, collaborative inquiry, and challenge-based learning. The celebration of learning ended with a question and answer session for a six-member thought panel, which included an eighth grader from Timberline discussing her experiences in STEM and real-world learning.
