The Discover STEM-E curriculum lab will provides modules for each STEM related area (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). It also provides exploratory projects for students in grades 4-6 enrolled in the Gifted and Talented program.
Enhancing Sensory Motor Experiences for Students with Special Needs
Sensory Motor development focuses on the integration of the tactile, proprioceptive (muscle and joint) and vestibular (movement) systems through interactions with the environment. The brain must learn through sensorimotor experiences in order to make organized sense of the body and its connection to the world. By utilizing the curriculum Sensorimotor Group A-Z and various materials, […]
Mulit-Sensory Approaches to Work Study and Reading
The multi-sensory teaching approach to reading is based upon the idea that some students learn best when the material they are given is presented to them in a variety of modalities. This method uses movement (kinesthetic), touch (tactile), visual and auditory modalities to help students read, write and spell. This project aims to support all […]
Classroom Amplification Technology
The goal of this project is to provide amplification in the upper grade classrooms so that students can overcome acoustic obstacles and achieve greater academic success. The CAT is a whole room audio system that allows the teacher’s voice to be amplified and heard regardless of where the students are seated in the classroom.
Investigating the Sciences using Data Collection Probes
In conjunction with an iPad, the Science department will utilize LabQuest2 standalone Data Collection Devices to engage the students in ‘hands-on’ and ‘minds-on’ learning. The probes provide students with the opportunity to quickly acquire real-time data and facilitate real work inquiry-based learning in a STEM environment.
