Every teacher is doing some sort of Project Based Learning in their classroom, including the specialists. Some of us teach STEAM classes, as well; I'm teaching engineering and our music teacher, Jessica Weingart, has a theatre class. STEAM classes meet for 45 minutes a day, each day, for 7 weeks.
From building kites to making automobile prototypes, my Engineering Design students have learned all about different types of energy, the laws of motion, and how to make things go. They are currently building robots that draw. Each project is documented and photographed; students conduct interviews and compile data to make decisions on what they are designing. It's been a terrific ride and they--are loving it. Me, too!
