Alcott Grades 1-5 STEM Challenge
We are piloting a new All-School STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Challenge on the afternoon of March 15 for grades 1 – 5. The kindergarten students will complete the STEM Challenge on Friday, March 18 with the help and support of their fifth grade buddies. This problem-solving collaborative task helps our students to use specific materials to solve a challenging problem. We have decided to pilot this all-school program in place of our annual Science Fair for this school year. After we complete the All-School STEM Challenge, we’ll evaluate this event and determine our next steps. Teachers will be requesting parent volunteers for their classrooms to help with this new activity.
