Welcome to my STEAM class. This is my 15th year teaching and my 10th year at Hurst Middle School. I am looking forward to teaching your student this school year.
The STEAM Class is a hands-on project based approach to explore real life problems and propose solutions. This class will integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics into the projects helping students to build skills in these disciplines. Students will not only build knowledge in these disciplines but will build their skills in problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and communication, preparing them for future work and career opportunities in the 21st Century. Projects will focus on the design process and well as science and engineering practices. Types of projects include robotics, coding, circuits, architecture and digital media. Due to Covid-19, we will be limited to projects that are digitally based or can be accomplished individually.
This year, I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be posted to and collected digitally.
To access Google Classroom please use the following link https://classroom.google.com/ and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the "Google Classroom" link on the left side of the menu. You can locate their username and password on a sticker located inside the front cover of their planner.
