Muse Elementary Students Visited by STEAM Mobile Museum
Instead of Muse Elementary School students travelling to a field trip, the field trip travelled to them!
Muse Elementary recently welcomed Mobile Ed Productions—a portable, hands-on STEAM Museum.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
The intention of the STEAM Mobile Museum? To bring a field trip experience to students in kindergarten through eighth-grade—right in their own school building.
Students independently and collaboratively worked their way through the virtual science museum and engaged in a variety of STEAM activities.
Workstations included hands-on experiments and experiences viewing and creating parabolic archways, 3-D printing, friction, robotics and K’nex structures.
Students also coded programmable robots and Ozobots, and explored Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
“The workshop unquestionably challenged students from kindergarten through fourth grade in the areas of divergent and critical thinking and tested their abilities to work independently as well as in a group,” Mrs. Makenzie Buhman, Muse Elementary reading specialist, said.
Here are more pictures of the fun:
Cecil Intermediate Student Wins $500, Builds Buddy Benches
Hayden is pictured here with Cecil Elementary second-graders.
Congrats are in order for Cecil Intermediate School sixth-grader Hayden Zissis, who recently won a $500 grant from The Sprout Fund’s Change Machine.
The Change Machine provides money to support, celebrate and showcase unique youth-led initiatives with the power to incite positive change.
The projects are innovative, non-traditional ideas that focus on current issues and challenges faced by youth, and inspire a diverse group of participants to be more active, involved, and civically-engaged.
Hayden’s project? Building four buddy benches for the elementary schools that feed into Cecil Intermediate.
The idea behind the Buddy Benches? That no kid is lonely and left out during recess.
Hayden said he noticed that some kids don’t have anyone to play with at recess and it made him sad, so he decided to build the Buddy Benches. When kids don’t have friends to pal around with at recess, they can sit on the Buddy Bench, and when their school mates see them there, they can invite them to play.
Not only did Hayden build the benches: He and his friends also put together a presentation and video for Cecil Elementary second-graders.
Two of the benches—which Hayden made from scratch—have been delivered. The other two are expected to be delivered sometime this summer.
