Oak Ridge Elementary School recently implemented Tinkering in Tech, a STEAM based lab, thanks to the generous support and funding provided by the Indian Valley Education Foundation.
STEAM (Science & Technology interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements) is a way to teach students how all things relate to each other, in school and in life.
The lab expands students thinking in finding multiple solutions to the same challenge by repurposing ordinary materials. The challenges within the lab require teamwork, increasing students' interpersonal and collaborative skills as they teach and learn from one another.
