Full STEAM Ahead Day

The 2nd Annual Full STEAM Ahead Day was today! Mrs. Brown, our GRT, and the STEM Committee did an absolutely wonderful job organizing the event. Full STEAM Ahead Day is when every student PK - 5th grade participates in a schoolwide STEM challenge. Each grade level had a different task...one that tied into our One District One Book theme of Stuart Little. Some built boats that had to move a certain distance, some built cars that had to carry a certain weight, others had to build something that could retrieve ‘the ring’ from the drain. Students really enjoyed the morning planning, building, and testing their creations. Final projects will be on display tonight at the Talent Show. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. At GES, we work each day to promote the STEM philosophy into our lessons and activities.
