The Woodstock Elementary School STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Lab and Makerspace is an exploratory learning space that strives to infuse the STEM disciplines into the broader curriculum. We have established a science, engineering and design learning lab in its own dedicated space, preparing our students today with the critical thinking, designing, engineering and problem solving skills they need to fill the jobs of tomorrow!
Miss Vermont, Alayna Westcomb, came to visit our school to do a Science Assembly and work with a few classes. She started with a whole school assembly, where she did a science demo called elephant toothpaste...
That was pretty exciting, but even more exciting were her visits to the second and third grade STEM classes, where she spoke about science jobs that students might be interested in.
She asked all the second grade students to draw "a scientist."
All the boys drew men, but all the girls drew women scientists! See some of their drawings below.
