1st Grade (RES) STEM Projects

Our Ridgeland Elementary School first grade scholars worked through the Japer County School District Science Curriculum document utilizing the new South Carolina 2021 Science standards to create their first nine weeks STEM project! Students worked through the Engineering Design process to design a home with a sturdy structure that could withstand inclement weather during their favorite season. Throughout this unit, students learned why the Earth tilts, why we have seasons, comparisons between day and night, sky patterns, and what happens during the seasons.

The STEM Bus is "rolling in Ridgeland"

Students on the Ridgeland campus participated in STEM activities via our innovative mobile STEM lab! Our JCSD scholars participated in block coding lessons and learned the basics of coding by using algorithms to solve problems and complete tasks. Additionally, students used LEGOs and worked through the Engineering Design Process to create models of robots and animals that were designed to complete specific tasks outlined by students.

The JCSD STEM Bus will continue to roll in Ridgeland for the next two weeks.
