Students in Ms. Mena's sixth grade bilingual class had an opportunity to participate in project-based learning by creating S.T.E.A.M. projects. Students had to do extensive research on a topic of their choice, culminating in the invention of something!
The S.T.E.A.M. projects that the students in the sixth grade bilingual class designed helped the students to learn how to problem solve, communicate, collaborate, innovate, and be creative. In addition, Ms. Mena's students had to compile their research onto Google Slides and present their invention to students from other classes in the auditorium!
