All Lower Schoolers participate in STEAM Lab, where they work together to solve a problem presented by the teacher over the course of several days. The emphasis is on growth mindset - learning from failure to find new paths to success. A recent assignment involved designing and building a new bridge for Lady Bird Lake in Austin!
iPad & Seesaw
Students are issued an iPad which they may use under a teacher's supervision. Many teachers elect to use the software program Seesaw, which enables students to demonstrate a new concept they've learned through video or animation. Parents are allowed to follow and comment on their students' posts, providing a dynamic answer to the age-old question: "What did you do in school today?"
