Swartz Lower Elementary School recently received $6,000 to help adequately prepare students for an ever-changing world through the use of a STEAM lab from the College Football Playoff Foundation. The grant is used to implement projects in our community that incorporate one or more of the pillars of the Extra Yard for Teachers Program: Resources, Recruitment and Professional Development. Through the help of ULM, the school has created a space for students to problem solve, explore, discover, and engage in creative exploration. With the help of the monies received, they are able to fill the STEAM lab to provide students the opportunity to invent, tinker, engage in engineering experiences and purposeful play. Collaboration among peers is promoted through the use of Ozobots, Sphero SPRK+, and Osmos. With the use of the funds, teachers will continue to weave standards-based instruction within the STEAM lab so to better set students up for success long after they leave Swartz Lower Elementary.
We are so excited and truly thankful for this opportunity provided by ULM and the CFP Foundation.
CONGRATULATIONS SWARTZ LOWER ELEMENTARY!
