STEAM Lab K-6 opens at Allison Park Elementary School
CHSD seeks to embed these competencies throughout the curriculum, so that STEAM is not viewed as a pull-out program but as something inherent in all classes, like writing and math skills. Students have opportunities to work with programming, robotics and manufacturing using 3-D printers. In addition, CHSD is supporting this initiative with digital citizenship training in the library and programming content in the sciences at the elementary school. The intent is that this becomes the foundation for a K-12 coordinated STEAM-technology curriculum that all students, not just those in college preparatory classes, would have access to. Many thanks to the current school board, and former board members Rich Hall, Fred Rockage and John Kelley for their support for this project and our students, as well as Mrs. Katie Magyar and Mrs. Nicole Bockstoce for their leadership and work in getting this program off the ground.
