BG Christian started its 3rd season of Lego© Club yesterday after school. Students are challenged to build on mechanical and structural principles normally hidden away inside everyday machines and structures. The club, open to 3rd-8th graders, was started last year as part of the national STEM education program initiative. These programs are intended “to give students the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds related to the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields” (http://www.pbs.org/teachers/stem/).
Advisors to the club this year are Mrs. Judy Bowlus and Mr. Brad Shaser (BG Christian Academy – Faculty)
“This club was one of our initial steps to incorporate STEM education in to our after school programming last year and the interest continues to grow each season.” said Admissions/Marketing Coordinator – Zane Powell. The students had their first club meeting on Wed. Oct. 22nd and were very excited to start building.
