Taking Learning to New Heights

We enjoyed the beautiful November weather and use clinometers to measure angles and find heights of structures.
 
 

Students Take Advantage of Office Hours 

iSTEM teacher office hours are available for our iSTEM students on Tuesdays from 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.  Students MUST make appointments with their teachers and have transportation home prearranged. 

 

On the first day, students were here.  Nice work.  You own the learning...



Audio Assignment


iSTEM students challenged one another with writing (and then audio recording) a script for the radio.  The assignment required a great amount of collaboration.  They then voted, ended up combining teams before announcing the winners.

...and the winners are Gary Scott, Skylar Nettles, and Ben Sulecki.
