The Pre-K-12 STEM pathway continues to be implemented at nine sites in PreK-5 classrooms. Students take four units a year, which are integrated into the ELA units. TUSD’s STEM Coordinator has sent out design challenge materials and made videos to help integrate each unit with an emphasis on science, engineering, and computer science concepts.
In December and January, STEM Unit B rolls out and grades 3-5 start training for Scratch computer programming.
In the Fall of 2021-22, engineering design challenges will be implemented in grades 6-12 math and science classes. The math and science units are designed by Design Team Members with the guidance and leadership from the Math/Science Committee and input from teachers in the district’s Math and Science department. You can take part in the design conversation and learn more by participating in district ERW meetings.
