Learning totally ROCKS at STEM! Our 4th graders just finished up their "Birth of Rocks" unit in science. As students progressed through the unit, the concepts being taught in their science class were brought to life during their STEM Connections course. STEM Connections is a new course being offered to our 4th and 5th graders. It is designed to reinforce the standards being taught in science and math with hands-on activities and real-world connections.
