  •  STEAM Fridays!

    This school year, the Eugenio Maria de Hostos MicroSociety School has instituted STEAM Fridays across all grade levels. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. STEAM is a way to teach how all things relate to each other, in school and in life. It’s more fun than traditional learning styles, and makes more sense to all types of learners, because it is based on the natural ways that people learn and are interested in things. Students like STEAM lessons because they are almost always investigating things that matter to them. An average lesson starts with giving students a reason to be interested in the topic. Then students research things to learn the content they need to know to gather and analyze data, then they plan and build something, correct it, analyze it and report on it. Ask your student about their STEAM Friday experiences.
