Coral Canyon Elementary School

School Type: Public
Designation: Bronze

Our vision for Coral Canyon Elementary School is to provide a challenging learning environment in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), which maximizes individual potential and ensures students are well-equipped to meet the challenges in the world around them. We believe that in order to create this environment, we must join the Maker movement, which celebrates creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship through the design and construction of physical objects. Where much of science education is results-oriented, Making is process-oriented and encourages experimentation and, yes, even failure. While Maker activities may come across as playful and messy, these characteristics are proven to fuel STEM learning, and as Edith Ackermann from MIT has said, “Play is a child’s most serious work.” Where STEM encourages excellence in specific fields, Making encourages the creative exploration and self-discovery of these skills and interests.
