STrEaM Girls attend Engineering Event

11/14/18
STEM at STrEaM!


















On November 13th, ten STrEaM students attended the "Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day" at the Egan Center.

Students participated in hands-on events and challenges designed and led by real engineers in our community. ASA's STEM, Robotics and Science teacher Ms. Draeger attended with students, along with Project Coordinator Megan Gatlin.

















7th grader Abby Ahlfield wants to be a Mechanical Engineer. She learned that engineering is a broad field with many different specialties. Her favorite activity was the balloon tower, as she was challenged by communicating with her group to create the tallest possible tower.

The event, a partnership between ASD, Girl Scouts of America and Exxon-Mobile, was covered by local media: https://www.ktva.com/story/39476448/young-girls-explore-career-options-in-engineering

"I Am" projects

September 20th, 2018


Dear parents, 

Our first school-wide project this year is the "I Am" project. Students explore the family, heritage, culture, experiences and background that forms their identities.  We have worked each Wednesday on this project, as well as asking students to research and work on it at home. Each student will produce a book showcasing who they are. These will be on display for you on October 17th. 

Mandatory parts of this project include: 
Personal crest and motto
"I Am" poem and essay
Map or flag

Optional parts include:
Music or song
Dance
Story/myth
Timeline
Interview
Collage
Food

Culmination of this project is a showcase on October 17th at 5:00 PM in the Wayland Baptist auditorium. Please plan on joining us!

Please check with your child and find out what optional parts of the project they signed up for. We are looking for more performances for the showcase: singers, musicians, dancers, etc. We encourage bringing a family or cultural food dish to the showcase to contribute potluck style. 

Please contact your child's advisor with any questions. 

Thank you,

Adam Mokelke
