Library and STEM

Our library not only serves as a hub of great reading, but as the place where we are building an exciting STEM program as well. We endeavor to immerse students in great tools for learning how to work with computer code and design. While younger students focus on pre-coding concepts using tools like Bloxels and BeeBots, the older students are transitioned into real text-based coding with Bitsbox where they learn the importance of code syntax and accuracy. We spend a lot of time talking about design, and we apply those principles to the building of applications. Kullerstrand is also very proud to host a competitive after-school robotics club for grades 3-5 using VEX IQ robots. Collage of images of students using tech

 

 

A 1:1 Device School

Kullerstrand is a 1:1 device school. Currently all K-1 students have iPads while 2-5 have Chromebooks. Before the pandemic, we were already using a good variety of tools. But having to accommodate remote learning for extended periods has pushed us to step up our digital skills. We have all become experts at so much more than we would have imagined! Our students and staff are comfortable with things like Seesaw, Google Classroom, Zoom, Google Meet, screencasting, video production, digital citizenship, and much more.
