4TH GRADE STEM CLUB
This year the fourth graders have a new opportunity at Pickaway Elementary. Once a month they are all invited to stay after school for the Fourth Grade STEM Club. This group of young scientists spends time creating and exploring the world around them through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts. The first STEM club meeting involved designing a roller coaster while looking for examples of potential and kinetic energy. The students looked at things like slope and height to build a coaster that included at least one loop. In October the students worked in small groups to build catapults. They were then taken to the gym to test their creations. Future STEM Club topics involve building windmills, designing speedboats, and creating a water filtration system. The club is a great after school activity to encourage students to look at the world scientifically and to use the design process to solve problems. Click here for additional pictures
