Overlake Elementary School
Overlake Elementary is dedicated to guiding students into the STEM subjects by sparking a lasting enthusiasm for STEM related careers and helping them prepare for their futures now. This will be completed in three ways:
First, we will incorporate STEM subjects and processes into the curriculum. This is defined as creating problem solving activities in reading, writing, math, and science. It also includes the teaching of the Engineering Design Process to incorporate better problem solving within the daily curriculum.
Second, Overlake will bring in hands on curriculum for Science and Math. This will help all students visualize the Sciences, Engineering, and Math no matter who they may be.
Third, we will introduce students to the fields of STEM by partnering up with outside entities to bring in extra activities. These include, Summer Science Academy, field trips, assemblies, Lego League, Code.Org, and others. The purpose is to bring STEM to life inside and outside of the school classroom.
To make this vision a reality, Overlake will team up with Tooele Education Foundation, Overlake Community Council, and Engineering Parents. We will find resources for teacher development, hands on experiments, and out of school activities related to STEM.View STEM School Awardees
