S.T.E.A.M. (STEM + art) = Success for Silver Mesa Students

She blinded me with science…technology, engineering, arts and math! Nearly 1,000 CSD students, parents and patrons attended Silver Mesa’s second annual S.T.E.A.M. night on Tuesday, Jan. 17th. 

The event exposes students to core academic concepts through hands-on activities. Fundamentals of engineering and technology, for example, are taught through Lego building exercises and virtual reality demonstrations. Artistic and literary skills are put to use in video-production exercises. The University of Utah Physics Department’s outreach program sponsored some scientific demonstrations, and students showcased their science fair projects, while everyone downed some delicious delectables served up by local food trucks. 

Study after study has shown how exposure to the arts can boost a child’s academic success. And while it was once thought that mathematic achievement alone predicted a person’s likelihood of pursuing a STEM career, research now underscores the importance of combining math concepts with science. 

“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy,” according to the National Science Foundation. “To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.”

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
