Sierra Verde STEAM Academy students use the Engineering Design Process and work collaboratively in an inquiry-based learning environment that encourages finding creative solutions to real world problems. Our partnership with families and the community provides a supportive environment with high academic standards dedicated to maximizing critical thinking, innovation, productive struggle, and collaboration to drive learning and problem solving. For the 2019-2020 School year, Sierra Verde will be using the theme of “Conservation” to guide our STEAM focus. All our stakeholders will be working towards the essential question “How do we conserve at Sierra Verde?”
In Second Grade we will be asking How can Second Graders conserve at Sierra Verde? We will be focusing on this question at least once per quarter. Students will engage in monthly STEAM activites on Fridays.
Our first STEAM Activity will be on August 30th and we will be harnessing the power of the sun!
