Weston Elementary Partners with Discovery Education to Launch School and Community STEAMformation Initiative
Today’s educators face a compelling challenge: How do they prepare students for careers that don’t yet exist? According to the National Education Association (NEA), in the 21stcentury “people who have the knowledge and skills to negotiate constant change and reinvent themselves for new situations will succeed.”
For many years all eighth grade Earth Science students have participated in the annual spring “Rivers Trip” as a culminating experience for their lakes, rivers and streams studies. This spring outing has provided every eighth grader with the opportunity to experience and study the structures of a natural river and examine why Wisconsin communities, like our own, are usually situated on rivers.
Throughout the school year, students in the D.C. Everest (DCE) Area School District are allotted Extended Learning Time (ELT) — a block of time in which they can meet one-on-one with teachers for assistance, complete homework, collaborate with classmates on projects or pursue interests beyond the school curriculum. DCE Middle School students interested in further exploring science, technology, art/design, engineering and math (STEAM), gravitated to science teacher DJ Huddleston during ELT time.
According to a recent study by the Brookings Institute, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) jobs remain the most difficult to fill for American companies. Why? STEM skills are in high demand, but employees with these skills are in low supply. The D.C. Everest Area School District responded to the demand for these skills years ago — launching a district-wide initiative to integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, math) skills across the curriculum for all K – 12 students.
