STEAM Education Program
This year at Timberlea Public School we are embarking on a journey towards integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics curriculum into weekly classes for all grade 1 to 6 students. We are excited to be working with our district's Elementary Educational Technology Coordinator, and colleagues at Westwood Community High School to develop a program for the 2017-18 school year. STEAM will be offered 2 periods per week for grades 1 to 6.
STEAM programming will engage all homeroom teachers in collaborative planning to develop hands-on experiential learning activities to enrich current curriculum and extend learning into real world applications. We wish to encourage students to take thoughtful risks, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process to design and complete STEAM projects.
