Southside Creates New STEAM Room
The Bees at Southside have been busy turning a classroom into a STEAM Lab! “STEAM” stands for “Science,” “Technology,” “Engineering,” “Arts,” and “Math.” This innovative room has been created with students in mind. We gathered a variety of recyclable resources by asking people to bring in items such as toilet paper and paper towel tubes, fabric, plastic containers, etc. We put in some alternate seating with the use of yoga balls, stools, bean bag chairs, and body pillows; and we made sure our desks and tables were innovation-ready!
Teachers will sign up to take students into this room where they’ll practice working together. Using a wide variety of materials, they will complete engaging activities, will problem solve, will create products, and will focus on projects which will promote learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.
