Crimson View Elementary School
At Crimson View Elementary, we would like to develop innovation in every student. We would like to integrate STEM into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. We would like to focus on teacher knowledge, student projects, and creating technology rich classrooms. We would like create more opportunities for our students to EXPLORE-CREATE-DISCOVER, our mission statement. We will do this by training teachers to provide more hands on science and engineering opportunities for students and by collaborating with other STEM communities. We would like to train our students to think and solve problems, not regurgitate information. We would like to better prepare our students to enter STEM careers by helping students become more aware of STEM related jobs, discover their talents, develop their passions, and deepen their understanding, to provide a better world for us all. We would like to develop STEM leaders at our school, teaching students that they have a voice in the world by sharing their ideas and projects. We would like students to learn and become proficient at the scientific practices.
