STEMosphere at Bridgewater College
You are invited to STEMosphere—Saturday, November 8 at Bridgewater College. At this free event open to learners of all ages, you and your children will explore and experiment with hands-on adventures such as solving a murder mystery, building 40-foot towers out of KEVA Planks, and hands-on flight simulations. Go to [ http://www.bridgewater.edu/ShareFair ] www.bridgewater.edu/ShareFair to register and spend a Saturday having fun and learning at the same time!”
Parent Advisory Committee
All parents are invited to the first “PAC” (Parent Advisory Committee) meeting of this school year on October 16th at 7:00pm in the library. The PAC meets several times during the school year to discuss topics of interest to parents. It is also a chance for parents and the principals to dialogue. This first meeting is a chance for Mr. Miller to share information about MMS – achievement data, demographics, and other information of interest. We will also brainstorm topics of interest for future meetings. Please join us!
At Montevideo Middle School Mr. Heinz’s Technology Education Classes conducted a three class collaborative STEM-LEGO, VIDEO and INVENTIONS Class project. The lesson was to have 3 different classes join and work together to build, program, test, and video a Robot all the while documenting how STEM was involved.
The Inventions class designed the robot using Lego and had the concept idea using science research skills. The Video class did the video, editing and downloading using technology skills. The First lego League and STEM team set up the project and documented the stem process in the notebooks. Using math skills to program the robots path this team helped build the test robot. The Video class had to video the Robot and the parts that make up the First Lego League project Robot. The first Lego League had to build the robot and program the robot to track back and forward with out hitting the walls of the box using engineering and technology skills.
Then the STEM students had to make the signs and document notes on how engineering, math, science and technology got involved to make the project come together. This Video was a way of documenting the final run of the robot. The Project was student generated, planned, and produced to show how different teams can work together to have a greater impact if all teams use stem.
After School Tutoring
Starting on Tuesday, October 7thth we will be offering after school tutoring. The tutoring will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until 4:30 in Mrs. Roach’s room (307). This is an opportunity for students to work on homework for all subjects and to get help with that work. It is a good time for students to make up work from absences and to have structured time to complete homework. Students can also get help with organization and studying.
The activity bus will be available on those evenings for students who need a ride home. Parents are asked to pick up students promptly at 4:30. Students without rides here by 4:30 will be put on the bus. Please let the office know by 3:30 if you do not want your child to ride the bus. Depending on the number of students that ride the bus, some students may not arrive home until 6:30 or 7:00.
