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.
