McCullough Academy Encourages STEM through a Distinctive Project Based Learning Experience
(Gary, IND) – Recently, students at Frankie Woods McCullough Academy created amazing replicas of technology pieces through a unique project-based learning (PBL) experience. The assignment was titled “inputs and outputs” and students were challenged to build something while explaining how it is used as an input or output source in the world.
Students creatively built phones, vending machines, computers and more out of every day products from home and displayed their projects in the library for the entire school to admire.
Projects like these are considered important 21st century skills; enhancing the critical thinking and “realia”, real life scenarios, as teaching aids. It helps students see the lesson outside of a graded assignment and engages them in preparation for real life.
