STEM Lab created at Woods Intermediate

Woods Intermediate School has been working on a two-year goal to create a new “hands on STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) lab to enhance their student engagement. The new STEM lab will have an active student-centered learning environment. Students will engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues.

A Promethian ActivPanel was purchased using grant funds. This device transforms the traditional “front-of-the-classroom” interactive display into a collaborative learning center where multiple students can simultaneously share ideas, practice team-based problem solving, manipulate images and edit digital content. Students will be able to travel all over the world using their fingertips. Utilizing award winning software, the ActiPavel allows a class to access traffic cameras from all over the world, some have already visited the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.
