Well, that was fun! Our class is participating in an awesome STEM, Project Based Learning program called, STARBASE.
This program investigates areas of Chemistry, Engineering Design Process, Robotics, Logic and Math, Fluid Mechanics & Aerodynamics, to name a few. The students were so excited (and I was too!) Check out our Animoto to have a look at some of our learning.
We have 4 more STARBASE sessions, so stayed tuned for more awesomeness!
