Southern Door Elementary School students are learning you can never be too young to start combining concepts from science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Better known as STEAM, Southern Door teacher Jessica Meacham has introduced the new class to students as young as kindergarten. For about an hour a week, students head to the STEAM maker space room to incorporate the five subject areas as they collaborate, communicate, create and think as a team. Southern Door Superintendent Patti Vickman says the class was made possible because of interest shown during lunch and independent learning activities.
The STEAM makers pace is in need of some items to help support their programming including toys, craft supplies, and recyclables. You can find a full list of items and learn how you can donate online with this story.
