2016 Engineering Discovery Week!
The 2nd Annual Engineering Discovery Week was held at Shepardson STEM Elementary on February 22 - February 25, 2016. Steve Hicks and Hicks Electronic Design designed a custom "Light to Sound Circuit Kit" and all of our Kindergarten through 5th grade students had the opportunity to use a soldering iron and other tools to complete and test their own circuit during the week. The Media Center was buzzing, literally and figuratively. We express our appreciation to Hicks Electronic design for their generous donation of the Light to Sound Circuit kits and for making the 2nd Annual Engineering Discovery Week a possibility! We also thank a wonderful group of volunteers - parents and grandparents, CSU students, Otterbox employees, Shepardson and PDS staff, and other community members, for their generous gift of time all during the week.This photo gallery represents a week filled with exciting STEM learning and collaboration between Shepardson STEM, our students, and the community partners. Thanks you to everyone who made Engineering Discovery Week a STEMtastic event!
2015 Engineering Discovery Week!
The inaugural Engineering Discovery Week was held at Shepardson STEM Elementary on April 24 - April 30, 2015. All students in Grades K-5 had the opportunity to learn about circuits and complete a project using LEDs, wires, resistors, batteries - a "blinky box," as the first graders dubbed the project. Each student had the opportunity to use a soldering iron and participate in an engaging hands-on experience. Local engineer Tom Connor and manager of My Blue Shed generously donated his time and talents to make Engineering Discovery Week at Shepardson possible. Our photo gallery represents a week filled with fun and STEM learning.
