Students learning through hands-on projects with robotics and experiments
(Gary, IND) – Beveridge Elementary School continues to conduct multiple hands-on STEM projects with students in an effort to engage scholars in a non-traditional learning environment. Last week, 3rd-graders learned how to manipulate and control robots through coding and 4th graders dove into the science behind weather.
The two-day weather workshop was conducted by representatives from Starbase Indiana which included simulations, logical thinking, and experiments that allowed scholars to understand the scientific reasoning behind storms and tornadoes. Upon completion, students were able to create tornadoes in a bottle and lightning.
“The students are excited to learn,” said Angela Grayson, Assistant Principal at Beveridge Elementary. “It is an honor to be able to provide them the resources and experiences that are preparing them for potential careers.”
