CEISMC March 2017 Month in Review

Looking back at March. Another month of watching our children and educators learn and grow.

Saturday Science offered Website Designer class to girls in grades 6 through 10. Girls created their own individual websites. Girls in grades 2, 3, and 4 developed and designed engineering based projects including pasta cars, ski lifts, and trash bag rain coats. Computer skills and hands-on STEM activities encouraged girls to be creative and use the engineering design process to problem solve. Twenty five girls participated on March 11, 2017 at the Georgia Tech Savannah campus.
CEISMC celebrated Pi Day with explorations of the famous number 3.14 with 6th grade students at Charles Ellis Montessori School and with fifth graders at May Howard Elementary. Teachers learned new hands-on activities and enriching lessons to share with their classes. More than 60 students and three teachers participated on March 14 and 15, 2017.
Two teacher workshops, held at Ebenezer Middle School in Rincon, Georgia, trained 17 faculty members on green screen, computer coding, and presentation software to more fully engage students in grades 6, 7, and 8 in STEM learning. This is a series of 8 workshops that will conclude in May.
Our spring cohort of MakeHer Mentor Girls Who Code wrapped up with nearly 20 participating girls in grades 6, 7 and 8 at Oglethrope Charter School in Savannah, Georgia. Girls used Ear Sketch to create their own album using python code and had a "release party" with autographs and pizza in March.
STEM activities for 9th and 10th graders at STEM High School in Rincon, Georgia continued in March. Students learned coding and green screen technology. March concluded 8 weekly sessions with the high schoolers.
