STEAM - Kathryn Jefferson

Welcome to the STEAM Lab!

Our students will explore STEAM careers and real world problems using the Scientific Method or Engineering Design Process. They will be engaged in lessons designed to make them think creatively and collaborate with others.  

Current Learning

Middle school students have been learning how to build boats to print in the 3D printer.  Their challenge includes a design that must float, have a design, and hold the most capacity.  

Steam Wheel students have been learning the history of board games, card games, and dice games. They are working on an original board game design.  They must make all pieces with the 3D printer.
