STEM Committee News: October 2013

The purpose of the STEM Committee includes providing curricular support for teachers and enrichment activities for students.  Another goal this year is to respond to the request we received from the faculty to focus more of our enrichment activities on the “M” (mathematics) in STEM this year; this also aligns with items discussed in Al’s “Focus School” letter.
Our plan to meet these goals for this school year’s activities includes variety of fun activities.  We will continue the successful “Lunch with an Expert” series, and are currently seeking experts from the Honey Creek community to come in and share their professional expertise with the students.  We will also be providing the wildly popular Trebuchet and Pumpkin launching at the Fall Festival again this year.  Additional activities include supporting the Honey Creek Science Olympiad (WESO) team, Pi Day (3/14/14) fun, math-focused games and events, and our flagship event, the STEM Fair & Guest Speaker Assembly on 5/2/14.
We have an active committee thus far this year, including new family members with students in K/1, and would welcome new members!
