SUMMER AT CITY – STEAM for 5th and 6th Grade
During the summer session at City Academy, the 5th and 6th grade students will be taking part in the STEAM Design Process. The materials used during the summer session can be found in the links below. An explanation of the STEAM Design Process and videos on the engineering process can also be found at the bottom of this page. Students that do not attend can also take part in some of the activities in the project packet.
STEAM Design Process
As a part of their experience in upper science, 3rd through 6th grade students will take part in various STEAM projects that integrate science, technology, engineering, art and math. Throughout the year, the STEAM Design Process will be encouraged from start to finish during these projects. Students will learn to OBSERVE the problem or situation, IMAGINE a solution or invention, develop an effective PLAN, CREATE what they have imagined, EVALUATE the effectiveness of their creation through testing, and ENHANCE their creation if it requires a tweak or repair.
