How do we do S.T.E.A.M. in the virtual world at FMS?
How do we do S.T.E.A.M. in the virtual world? Well, VIRTUALLY!! It starts with a story in which students have to identify a ‘PROBLEM’ that needs a creative solution.
In Fisher Middle School’s Virtual 8th Grade Science Program, students in Mr. Williams’ and Mrs. Lotito’s classes were tasked with assisting a group of engineers, on a secret Moon mission, stranded from their Moon Base, in need of tools to fix their Lunar Vehicle.
Implementing the Engineering Design Process, students gathered what recyclable materials that they could, researched, designed, and developed an LTV C.A.R.T. (Lunar Transport Vehicle … Carries All of the Right Tools) that fulfilled certain criteria.
They were creative! They were out of this world! They had some fun!!
We are eagerly awaiting our next communications from Mission Control!!!
