Students at Fickett Elementary School participated in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Day with each grade level engaging in hands-on construction projects.
The focus was on the technology and engineering of STEM. Through class discussions, students learned that technology is anything that helps humans solve problems, whether it is an object, system or process.
In addition, they answered questions such as “What Do Engineers Do?” and “What Are the Steps in the Engineering Design Process?”
Papillion Little, the STEM coordinator at Fickett, stated that “STEM projects help students make science and technology connections to real-life situations.”
