What is STEM?
It is practicing what real scientists do.
It is an experience that encompasses Science concepts, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
It is where students will learn "How to Learn".
It is where students will become better Science citizens.
It is a place where it is safe to take risks and learn more from what we do wrong than what we do right.


Students will earn a "+" or "-" mark on their report card for STEM class. To receive a "+" a students must meet expectations by consistently completing their work, cooperating with their partner, and being safe in the classroom. If a student receives an "-" parents will have been notified with a consequence form from Ms. Jozaitis.

If you ever have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
 

This week in class

Monday
Third Grade: Students are engineering their dragster. First the third graders designed a car with a shape that would be fast. It is smooth, curvy and aerodynamic. Then they sanded their design and assembling the parts of their dragster. In the end the students will use air pressure to race their cars to calculate its speed against other teams.

Tuesday
Fourth Grade:Students will be engineering solar race cars. Students are using fractions and measurements to construct their design. They will learn that the angles of the panels can affect the cars performance.

Wednesday
Fifth Grade: Students are engineering water bottle rockets. They are collaborating, communicating and thinking critically. Students will test their product by adding air to the bottle and launching to discover its altitude,
