  • Bird's Nest STEM Activity

    The first grade teachers and Ms. Killoran have been putting their students up to the challenge of protecting the young! The students have been learning how parents and their children - from humans to animals to plants - share common traits. But even though they share traits, the young still need their parents to survive! The students' challenge was to create a nest that would protect a baby bird and egg. Their nests had to hold together on their own on a branch while holding a toy bird and plastic egg. Pictured are Mrs. Hicks' first graders testing their nests.

  • Volcano Activity

    It was a big adventure in Ms. Olson's early childhood room this week. Students mixed up their own dough and formed it around a tube to make a volcano. They added baking soda and vinegar and watched their volcanos erupt. Students used many of their senses as they mixed the dough, watched the volcano erupt, listened to the bubbles, and smelled the vinegar. Sensory and hands on play is an important way young children learn and explore.

    Mrs. Grommesh’s Housing and Living Environments class had a guest speaker this week to talk about Interior Design.

She also explained to the students the process behind the research designers do for each design project, the importance of being a team player when you work with a design team, clients and architects, how networking is essential for career planning, and how public speaking and presentation skills are vital in her schooling/career She showed the class sample design projects and will be returning next week to teach students how to use the program SKETCHUP 2017 to create floor plans in 3D. The Housing and Living Environment students will then do a design layout of their bedrooms as their project.

  • Stem Center Renderings

    Architects, STEM Consultants, administration and teachers have been busy collaborating ideas on what our new STEM center will look like at Central Cass. The state of the art design will encompass Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through fun, hands-on experiences where real learning occurs. Click the header for a link to look at a rendering of what our STEM center has the potential to look like. Note; furniture and details will change, but the walls and floor plan will likely stay the same with minor tweaking. To move the screen to look around, click and drag the screen. Pictured is Mr. Forness looking through 3D Binoculars at the rendering presented by Zerr Berg Architects. We have several sets of the binoculars in the main office if you want to see it for yourself in 3D.
