Learn through our experiences about what it was like to create and organize a STEAM program for 9th graders. At WMRHS we have just finished our first year with the STEAM program and about to embark on year two. You will hear about a new way to create projects that are filled with inquiry and student choice all the while adhering to common core and next generation science standards. You will learn about the process of creating a new way of "doing school" from the brainstorm of class configuration to working with the master schedule to maximize student learning to creating a culture of student choice and voice.
