AMS 1st Annual STEM GAMES
AMS 1st annual STEM Games were a huge success. Students in grades 6-8 completed a project of their category choice through their science class.Categories to choose from included: Science Fair, Catapults, People Powered Cars, Egg Buggy, Graphic Design, Windmills, Rub Goldberg or Gliders. Students had an appointment time within the day to meet with judges and show off their hard work. Some students worked alone while others teamed up. Awards were given to the top 4 of each category in the two age groups of 6th graders and 7-8 grades. Behind the scenes work that took place in preparation to the day was, students were expected to write a research paper with cited sources to support learning and design ideas of their project, test and graph to justify design adjustments made throughout the building process, and then create a presentation and deliver it in their science class.
