Nurturing Tomorrow’s Achievers Since 1969
Our AHA! Moments take place in our classrooms, every day!
Over the last few weeks, our Grades 1 through 8 worked on our monthly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Challenge. Rowntree has regular challenges throughout the year to further integrate STEM principles and apply them into the everyday teaching and learning. This year’s overarching theme revolves around urbanization and the various issues associated with growing cities. Students explored problems such as land fragmentation, habitat loss, and the effects of urban living on physical health, and so on. After brainstorming a solution as a class or group, students create a model and present using various tech tools.
