Mr. Rodgers

S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, art, math) education at Alberta Smith Elementary has opened up a new world of learning for our students, as it provides students of all ages hands-on learning experiences. Students are able to take the information that they are learning in class and apply it to real-life situations, which creates a project based learning environment. We use the engineering design cycle to approach projects in all grade levels as they work collaboratively to design plans, build prototypes, test, improve, and present their finding, as well as reflect on the whole project. This approach to learning also allows students an opportunity to see how their knowledge and skills can be applied to careers in STEAM fields. Therefore, helping them to find a passion that they can continue to pursue throughout their educational career.
