Skokie District 69 is pleased to announce a new STEM program to start in fall of 2014. For the past year, teachers have been exploring a new curriculum from Project Lead the Way (PLTW). In February, a proposal was brought to the Board of Education during the annual planning retreat explaining how Project Lead the Way would be incorporated into the student learning day starting in Grade 3. With Board approval, the teachers have been working to incorporate these engineering and science based units into the taught curriculum.
Starting next year, students in grades 3-5 will experience units on the science of flight, energy, robotics and automation with the incorporation of Launch. In grades 6-8 students, through Gateway, will have the opportunity to explore aspects of engineering, robotics, energy, medical science, architecture, and nanotechnology just to name a few.
This spring and summer, teachers will be working hard to align these units to the current math and science curriculum so that students will have the opportunity to apply what they are learning in math to a unit of flight, for instance. This approach puts our students at the leading edge of the “STEM for All” model being implemented nationwide. This trailblazing effort by our teachers will ignite students’ passion to understand and apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math today and well into the future.
