For the 2017-2017 School Year it will be "FULL STEAM AHEAD" as we pilot a new program called Kindergarten STEAM.
STEAM incorporates elements of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Next year’s Kindergarten program will be infused with lessons and activities that involve all five areas above.
In addition to working on numeracy and literacy skills, the STEAM Program will offer students opportunities to develop their creative talents via the Arts. Kindergarten students will also be introduced to science and technology concepts using various software programs and robotic-type toys. Some of these programs that are currently being explored include: Beebot, Osmo, and Dot n Dash. Students will also have the opportunity to create a variety of educationally-related objects using a 3-D printer. There are only a few such programs in Alberta, and Greely Road School is the only one to offer it in Fort McMurray.
