Welcome to STEAM @ Stratford Landing
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics)
The complex nature of today’s society require students to develop a new set of skills and knowledge to be competitive in the rapidly-changing world. STEAM lab provides project-based, relevant, and rigorous learning opportunities that promote lifelong learning and problem-solving skills. Our goal is to deepen content understanding and foster Portrait of a Graduate attributes through integration of STEAM, while providing exposure to and opportunities for STEM careers.
SLES STEAM Lab is a student-centered instructional model that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics to deepen content understanding and foster Portrait of a Graduate attributes.
For the first four weeks of STEAM Lab, we used the Engineering Design Process to execute quick 1-day challenges. We took on the role of architects and engineers to develop various structures using fun materials.
We combined materials like index cards, Keva blocks, dry spaghetti, masking tape, marshmallows, and newspaper to create tall and stable structures. Check out the challenges below to see what your Stratford Dolphin did in STEAM Lab the past month...
