Spotlight on Specials - STEM with Mrs. Long


Our WCES Students LOVE when it is time to go to specials each day! Check out what is happening in Mrs. Long’s STEM Specials.


In STEM this year, we have been focusing a lot on teamwork. When the students are given a challenge they must problem solve together as a team to come up with a solution. 5th grade just finished coding and designing their own amusement park ride. 4th grade is working their way through problems dealing with our ocean, like the trash, and learning about STEM careers, like a marine biologist. Kindergarten and 1st grade love beginning coding with our beebots. 2nd and 3rd grade are learning all about simple machines and will create their own version of the old game Mousetrap. 


In STEM we are always creating and engaging in productive struggle as we work through a problem.
