STEM Studies in Action
STEM studies are important in the early grades at Clairbourn, and part of the program is an annual engineering event designed to focus their studies. Watch videos below of the most recent October 2018 event where preschool and kindergarten students, along with their families, showed off their hydro-engineering skills at the STEM Beaver Dam Build Event.
The event space was filled with giant displays documenting, in great detail, the students' learning journey. Each display depicted their creative thinking, problem solving, and hands-on engineering skills. The audience enjoyed a teacher presentation describing the research, exploration, and science skills associated with the study of dam building and beavers. Then the group was invited to build their own dam, each of which was tested for water-tight properties.
