Westview Late Start STEM Explorations

Each month on late start days, we bring in outside professionals to lead hands-on additional learning opportunities for students.  While teachers are in their professional development, the doors are open and the learning continues for eager students.  We welcome all Westview students as well as 5th graders from our feeder schools to attend these Late Start STEM Explorations.  Topics have included, marine biology, lasers, SparkFun electronics, sound waves, classification, nanoscience, eye dissection, and more.  Our latest STEM Exploration focused on Waves, Technology, and Innovation.  The workshop blended innovative opportunities for innovative thinking with activities using thermal cameras, night vision systems, lasers and signals.
