STREAM Program Update: Our teachers have been trained in STREAM through the Massachusetts based organization of STREAM. STREAM is an innovative framework of hands on instruction whereas students explore a selected topic across the content areas of science, technology, religion, engineering, arts and mathematics. This program incorporates up to date, cutting edge educational concepts and practice that demonstrate the quality education that students receive at a Catholic school in our diocese. Learning occurs at an individual student pace based level enhanced by the collaboration between peers and instructors.

SH students had three opportunities to explore a topic of their choice over an eight week cycle. Design, research and construction will culminate in a fully developed project which culminates in a demonstration day for all. Our program is also rather unique because our project groups are formed by student interest with a multi-aged approach. For example, Sally in grade five may select “robotics” and find herself working with other students from grades 3 through 6.

Some of this year’s STREAM activities included: rockets (gr. 3-6), bridge construction (gr. 4-6), CO2 car racing (gr. 4-6), robotics (gr. 3-6), agricultural engineering (gr. K-6), architecture (gr. 3-6), understanding simple machines (gr. K-6), light circuits (gr. 4-6), engineering a shelter for a Lego person (Pre K), building a toy chute (Pre K), pool noodle engineering wall (Pre K), building a sculpture from nuts and bolts (Pre K), theme based musical (gr. 4-6), look at me now (gr. 3-6), making a compost bin (gr. K-3), make your own snack machine (gr. K-3), a new ride at Disney World (gr. K-3) and so much more.
