K-3 STEAM Clubs

What are STEAM Clubs?

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Clubs are an opportunity for a small group of students to explore, engage, preserve, and follow their passions in a variety of fields.

2019-20 STEAM Clubs

STEAM Clubs are currently for kindergarten through 3rd grade. We will meet on Tuesdays after school, 3:30-4:30. Please refer to the calendar on this site for any changes.

Students will gather outside Room 5 at 3:30. At 4:30, we will meet you at the front doors. If your child goes to Club 66 after a STEAM Club, I will walk him/her there.

Family Code Night at Rockbrook December 5, 5:00-6:00

Please join us for this FREE family event!

Project

Project: Students will need to complete a project as follows for consideration.

Design your own game. The project can be a drawing, constructed 3D model, digital design, coded program, or other creation. The game needs to be a simple one-player game, have a goal or way to win, and have rules for playing. Projects can be directly turned in or emailed to Mr. Carlson.

Primary Coders

A look into what your child will learn and how he/she will experience it. The multi-touch book is geared towards kindergarten, but can be differentiated based on student experience with coding.
