The purpose of this class is to allow students to have a deeper understanding of science concepts by experiencing hands on activities. STEAM integrates science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
Students will be investigating a wide variety of activities from building and testing their models to doing labs that verify concepts. Some possible topics for discussion include, but are not limited to: engineering design, dichotomous key (using sea shells), mint- mobile, flying saucers, swinging monkey.
3 ring notebook with pocket, pencils, and paper. Lab supply fee is $20 and should be given directly to the instructor.
