Woodbury Elementary has partnered with BrainStorm STEM Education- "a tech-based academy." BrainStorm sends teachers out to our school everyday to lead lessons in technology which include things like engineering, science, coding, and many other awesome skills! This is not the kind of learning that current adults were exposed to as children, and so this is extra special for our 21st century kids today!
Our Kindergarteners got another taste of the STEAM lessons. We participated in a lesson about Static Electricity and Reactive Eruptions. The kids were given static wands and lightweight tinsel. It was like watching students practicing Harry Potter magic spells as they were able to levitate their pieces of tinsel in the air! They also used baking soda and vinegar to practice making volcanic eruptions in their own miniature volcano models!
