The 2017-2018 Avery Coonley STEAM club registration for the second trimester will open on Monday, January 22, 2018. While STEAM is heavily integrated into the science and computer curriculum here at Avery Coonley, STEAM club allows an extra hour per week to focus on a STEAM challenge.

Studies have shown that dedicated time to STEAM:

  • Develops creativity & ingenuity

  • Cultivates creative confidence (challenges of the future will require creative solutions)

  • Boosts soft skills like communication, trial-and-error problem solving, critical thinking, &

    data analysis

  • Encourages necessary “play”

  • Facilitates integrated learning

  • Fosters inquiry, collaboration, and process-based learning

  • Provides experience in growing fields such as technology and engineering 

Students are not required to have attended the first trimester session in order to qualify for the second session. Registration is open to the first 30 registrants in 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th Groups. Completed registration forms are due to one of the science teachers by Wednesday, January 31. Download the registration form here.
