The students have been exploring various activities in the STEAM Program. After the Christmas break we worked on created circuits.. Then for the past two weeks the students created ART projects using the Pixie program. As the get more comfortable with the program, they can use it to for any subject area. Pixie allows them to respond to their experiences in creative way. Also in this blog, you will find videos of Mrs. R. Gonzalez's and Mrs. Geraghty's classes during their first week of STEAM.
Because of all of the Christmas celebrations, some classes did not experience their first STEAM experience until today. One of those classes was Ms. Sol Gonzalez's class. See there video below.
The students were anxious to get back to work in the LAB. The children in Tuesday's classes experienced working with the Building Sets before the break. This week we were going to try Animation-ish. We started with Mousercise. This program helps students to manipulate the mouse so that they will be able to draw freely when we work on Animation. Due to some problems with the software, we were unable to draw!
Christmas vacation starts very soon. Many of the classes were having parties and participating in the Christmas program. Mrs. McIntire's class came to the LAB briefly to see the room. Mrs. Eaves' second grade class came to PLAY. See their awesome video below.
Welcome to our S.T.E.A.M. Blog page! The first and second graders of King Elementary School in Harvey, IL had their first experiences in the S.T.E.A.M. Lab this week. As an introduction to the program, they watched the Welcome video. They sang our S.T.E.A.M. song, and experimented with the building sets. We are off to a great start.
