Please watch this introduction video from the principal of Riversink Elementary School, Simeon Nelson.
STEM education refers to the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and is usually presented through hands-on and relevant real-world learning experiences. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators.
The U.S. Department of Education outlines that parents do not need STEM degrees to help children learn science. Armed with just a magnifying glass and going outside, parents can teach kids about the world by asking children to observe, ask questions, and think about what they see about everything, from bugs to mud puddles.
For January’s Title I Virtual Event, Wakulla County School District would like to introduce you to a free STEM resource called Mystery Science.
Mystery Science offers online science activities that are super easy to use and have outstanding content. Activities on specific topics are designed for students in kindergarten through fifth grade with the goal of developing a positive attitude toward science. All lessons are aligned with Florida’s Next Generation Science Standards.
You can access the informational flyer about how to log in to Mystery Science and complete the activities for this virtual event here:
