STEAM

  • Science | Technology | Engineering | Arts | Mathematics

    The Educational Services Department creates engaging sessions to bring to Lake County classrooms for both teachers and students that involve different sections of STEAM.

    STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics to engage students.

    Our Learning Support Specialists visit classrooms to offer engaging science, robotics and engineering lessons.

    Sessions give teachers the opportunity to see the discussions, engineering, labs and activities in action with their own students. This provides the benefits of a science convention or workshop right to the classroom.

    All supplies, materials and equipment needed to do the experiments are provided by the program.*

    Sessions can take 50 minutes to 3 hours to complete, with flexibility for classroom scheduling.

    Sessions include:

    • Mousetrap Cars (8th - 12th grade)
    • Balloon Cars (5th - 6th grade)
    • Steady Hand Electricity Game (4th grade)
    • James Webb Space Telescope (4th - 12th grade)
    • Robotics (K - 8th grade)
    • Rig Survey International (RSI) Engineering (9th - 12th grade) 
    • Force & Magnet Races 
    • Seasonal Weather & Engineering Solution to a Weather Hazard 
    • Alka-Seltzer Rockets 
       

    Each session follows the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

    If you are interested in a session, contact Science Learning Support Specialist - Science, and 2011 California State Teacher of the Year, Jennifer Kelly at jkelly@lakecoe.org.

    More lessons can also be developed that follow NGSS by contacting Jennifer Kelly. 

    *Supplies and materials for experiments will be provided.
