STEAMers WAKE-UP!

The SATURDAY STEAMers “make, build, create” courses are being held at Carl Sandburg Middle School for students in grades K-8.  They run on six Saturday mornings between January 27th and March 10th.  District teachers and parents bring their own unique talents, strengths and interests to the course curriculum, as they are the creators as well as the instructors.  One teacher mentions that what she sees as the best part of teaching these classes is “children at different grade levels working at challenging tasks, side by side, having so much fun!”  In a STEAMers class an observer may find students of all ages collaborating and working together to build a creation out of Legos and K’Nex, breaking open a lock, classifying seeds, or writing musical compositions out of Skittles!

The annual enrichment program has been a success in the district for many years and recently has taken on a new twist by adopting the STEAM philosophy - courses have Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math components embedded within them.  Project Challenge Coordinator Tony Cho organizes and oversees this highly anticipated learning opportunity. The D75 S.T.E.A.M. Foundation, an organization with the mission to “Cultivate every child’s creativity, technology skills, and career readiness”, has taken on sponsorship.  Because SATURDAY STEAMers offers “engaging, hands-on activities where students can make connections between academics and the real world,” it is sure to continue… full STEAM ahead for District #75 families!
