STEAM

STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Using STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. By exposing our students to STEAM lessons and giving them opportunities to explore STEAM-related concepts, they will become successful in our technological society and develop knowledge and understanding of the disciplines that help build our world.

STEM at St. Als/St. Pats: Science Fair 2023

The St. Alphonsus-St. Patrick School Science Fair was held on Thursday, January 26. Students from both 7th and 8th grade participated in the event. They began developing their inventions in October under the direction of Mrs. O’Hara, our junior high science teacher. The students first brainstorm to think of an original product that might serve a useful purpose, solve a problem, or fill a particular need. The final products represent months of hard work, ingenuity, and creative problem solving. The critical thinking and problem solving fostered by the Science Fair are very important skills that students need to have in their toolbox for life. The student inventions were judged by teachers and community members based on criteria such as the originality and usefulness of the idea, the workmanship of the product prototype, the marketing plan, market research, and the creator’s response to the market research.
