2015- 2016 school year
For the 2015-2016 school year, the Moretown School will offer a STE@M program for students in our upper unit. This 12 week, collaboratively-taught program introduces foundational engineering, design and communication concepts and tools. Our curriculum is informed with local and national STEM curriculum, and aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core learning outcomes.
The Moretown STE@M program is partnering with various community organizations, such as the Vermont Energy Education Program (VEEP), to involve our fourth, fifth and sixth graders with creating, tinkering, and problem-solving opportunities.
