Timnath Elementary School is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) – focused school that emphasizes 21st century skills where students creatively think and problem-solve in an engaging, collaborative community.
What does STEM look like at Timnath Elementary?
We are among a small group of elementary schools who are using a STEM focus as our avenue for student engagement and high achievement. Our school uses an organic approach to STEM, utilizing locally available resources, skills, and expertise. At Timnath Elementary, STEM is not only about *what* we teach, but it has become *how* we teach. Teachers have had specialized training in using inquiry through a workshop model. This means that they focus and increase students’ learning by teaching them to ask questions and use critical and creative thinking to solve real-world problems.
What does that mean for instruction and achievement?
We use the Colorado Academic Standards and adopted PSD materials and currriculum as a foundation for teaching and learning. Our teachers work with colleages, parents, and community partners to develop lessons that expand on STEM-related content, and we foster student inquiry and exploration through STEM learning experiences.
