With a great love of science - I fully advocate for STEM in the classroom. At every opportunity we strive to build, or engineer, solutions. In this way we can not just possess our learning, but feel a deep sense of accomplishment. A love of science all starts in your childhood and with your mentors. In the wake of artificial intelligence and further automation, we must continue to update and improve ourselves as well, to be prepared for the workforce demands of tomorrow. Ultimately, being grounded in reality and knowing the demands of tomorrow (the working years of our students) is of the utmost importance to them.
So here is to building the foundation for that future, right here, in 5th and 6th grade science!
