STEAM Days for 2019 - 2020
This year, all our grade levels will be working towards the essential question "How do we conserve at Sierra Verde?" Each grade level will dedicate at least 1 day per month for work towards a STEAM based project. As a campus we will work towards finding ways to conserve resources, energy, and how we can reduce our overall environmental footprint on campus.
"In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past." - National Science Foundation
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 learnng and problem solving.
