Young 5s- Full STEAM Ahead!

I was invited to visit Kandi Mehrhof’s Young 5s classroom at Oakman to see how she gets her students engaged in the engineering process at a young age.  Each morning, students choose a tub of materials with which to design and build a structure.  The only goal is for them to work together.  There is only one project allowed per table, so students must collaborate to build their structure.  Excellent job, Mrs. Mehrhof!
