Students had a BLAST on what I always call "the BEST field trip ever!" last week at UL in Northbrook. This field trip fits in PERFECTLY with our STEM focus, demonstrates the scientific and engineering processes in real life/career application, and also teaches students about safety of household items. Through hands-on activities and engaging discussion, students enter the world of product safety and quality testing. The icing on the cake is getting to stop in the UL museum before boarding the bus back to school!
The Indian Trail PTO must know what's on our holiday wish list....because they sure did deliver the BEST pre-holidays gift EVER! Visions of STEM labs and 3-D printers will be dancing in our heads over winter break......Last week our fabulous PTO presented the Mobile Ed Hands-On STEM Lab and it was AMAZING! Check out the slideshow full of fun action photos to get a glimpse of this wonderful afternoon filled with Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math experiences. THANK YOU to our PTO for providing our students with interactive learning experiences such as the Mobile STEM Lab!! WE LOVED IT!
I am a theme-weaving, bargain-hunting, creative public educator who teaches a fabulous group of 4th graders at Indian Trail Elementary School in Highland Park, Illinois.
