Watch E-STEM in action!
On May 7, 2012, the school board approved a proposal that will make all of our K-5 elementary schools the first district-wide E-STEM schools in the state of Minnesota. E-STEM stands for Environmental Science Technology Engineering and Math. The committeehas defined E-STEM as follows:
An interdisciplinary approach to instruction and learning focused on inquiry and real world problem-solving in the 21st Century, applying hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematical practices with projects and field experiences related to the environment.
