After-School PEAK Club

PEAK Club is an after school club for our 3rd through 6th grade students who are identified as high ability learners.  The club consists of three boys and eight girls this current year.  As the teacher representative and founder of the club, I am hoping to engage these students in various STEM projects, beginning with First Lego Leagues.  I am hoping to spur them onto engineering projects through problem solving with Legos.

Another piece of curriculum we are exploring is the Energy unit from Jason.org.

We are also hoping to take a field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago - something these girls have never had the opportunity to do before.

My hope is to expand these young, bright minds into the science and technology world.
