What is STEAM?
"STEAM" is a teaching/learning concept that the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math often work together to solve complex problems and make the world a better place. STEAM education teaches students to take thoughtful risks, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. All of these areas of study are worth celebrating and worth teaching tomorrow's leaders!
2021; STEAM Week
In April 2021 we celebrated science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) with B-PC's youngest learners, and as always we loved including outside contributors as well!
We brought a special STEAM learning segment to our students every day of April through various activities, prompts, and video submissions.
Check out the awesome learning that took place, and join us in looking forward to future STEAM initiatives!

Event #4: Curling
Students watched videos on the olympic event of curling and learned a lot! This mysterious event involves a great deal of science and engineering... Students created their own curling stones and rink to explore different factors that made the game more and less successful.
