The Think Tank course is provided in our elementary buildings in grades 1-4, and our middle school building in grades 5-6. The purpose of Think Tank (also known as the Technology or STEM class) is to ensure students work on the 4 C's in 21st century skills- collaboration, communication, critical thinking skills, and creativity. Students need these core skills in today's global community, and what better way than to be engrossed in hands-on learning! In this class, we give students the opportunity to take ownership for their learning, moving towards being developers of knowledge rather than consumers of knowledge. This class gives students a space where they can learn and be motivated to be problem solvers! Students will learn about the importance of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), learn about different types of engineering fields, and the engineering process, learn computer science and coding, while also applying all that knowledge into multiple engineering and robotics stations!
