These student screen captures give a fairly good overview of the past trimester. Students came back from Spring Break and we just plunged right in with our deserted island and made it our own one prim at a time. This work supports the latest STEM initiative (science, technology, engineering & math) and also the new NETS student standards in technology. Check out a job application for engineering these days and you will see that they want people who are self-starters who can collaborate with others. Those are just some of the 21st Century skills Phoenix Elementary students have learned during this brief time on PESD Island.
