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!
VEEP (Vermont Energy Education Program) came to WES and worked with the fourth grade students to study the components of wind and solar energy. Students learned about how electricity is generated, and the difference between renewable and non-renewable resources. They tested optimum turbine blade or solar panel angles for optimum power production.
