A Peek into STEM

Kinder kids are learning about animals of the Sandia Mountains? We had a windy day that gave us the perfect opportunity to make a windmill and learn what makes wind! “The sun warms the Earth, the Earth warms the air....” See if your student can finish.

First grade students have been busy learning about living things. They had a living visitor named Rolo. They are also planting seeds and will be making observations about the birds that visit their bird feeders! If you would like to donate birdseed, see your child’s teacher!

Second grade is beginning to engineer a solar oven. We will be cooking up S’Mores pretty soon.

Ask your 3rd grader how bad plastic is for the environment. What is their solution? You can find out at the STEM festival or just ask them about it. Hint: Did you know you can make plastic out of milk?

Fourth graders did a great job engineering a water wheel. Congratulations to Mrs. Lopez’s class for designing a water wheel that actually generated electricity!

Fifth graders just completed a biosphere with millions of living organisms in it. Can they survive until May? (No fifth grade students were actually trapped in the biosphere.)

Thanks for supporting STEM!
