STEM Studies in Action

STEM studies are introduced in the early grades at Clairbourn, with an annual early learning engineering event serving as a culmination point for their STEM project. During this special event, preschool and kindergarten students, along with their families, showcase their engineering skills. Some of the featured projects have included a Beaver Dam Build, Sailing Regatta and Parachuting Jack and the Beanstalk.

This event is one of our school's favorites, as it highlights the design thinking journey even at the earliest grades. Each display reflects their creative thinking, problem-solving abilities, and hands-on engineering skills. Families also enjoy the teachers' presentations and have the opportunity to engage in a hands-on activity with their children.
