Orange, CA – October 30, 2018 – Orange Unified School District continues to create integrated approaches to curriculum through STEAM Innovation days. The tools and lessons introduced in a STEAM Innovation Day allow for solving problems in math, science, and language arts.
This past Wednesday, Nohl Canyon Elementary School staff and students had the opportunity to experience new devices, tools and lessons used by the Educational Technology department to support STEAM in the classroom. Students were introduced to the use of robots to demonstrate their understanding of angles, measurement and coding. They also learned about the transference of energy and biology by utilizing circuitry and stop-motion capture. Working collaboratively through these processes with their peers, students were fully engaged in using STEAM tools they recognize as part of the world today.
The integration of science, technology, engineering, arts and math in the classroom helps to guide students into a design-thinking mentality that enhances their growth mindset while preparing them for future careers.
