STEAM Education at Wildfire Elementary School
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Education is a focus of learning in all classrooms at Wildfire Elementary School.
Early Release half-days are dedicated to students in all grade levels and classes participating in the STEAM lessons created by their teachers where students are given the opportunity to work collaboratively with their classmates as they participate in the engineering design process. During lessons, students engage in engineering practices such as defining problems, developing and using models, and designing solutions. Participation in these practices helps students understand the work of engineers, as well as the links between engineering and science.
