SUMMER STEM AND LEADERSHIP CAMP
Harmony Public Schools arrange Summer STEM and Leadership Camp annually for the 6-11th grades eligible students. This year we will be holding our camp at Aspendale Mountain Retreat Center in May 30th - June 9th, 2014.
Boys: June 3 - 8 Girls: May 29th-June 3
The students need to return their signed permission slips, medical release and liability forms by Thursday, May 14th, 2014. The permission slips and payments are accepted at the front office. Since we will have limited place for each campus, it's going to be "first-come-first-serve basis"! Event cost includes only meals at the camp, transportation and accommodation fee! Any meals during the travelling are excluded!
Dr. Sahin, of Harmony's research department has announced a new book focused on Harmony's approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, is now available for purchase. The book is titled STEM Students on the Stage (SOS).
The STEM S.O.S. model is a rigorous interdisciplinary STEM teaching approach that is teacher facilitated, student-centered and directed through sequenced set of student projects. In contrast to the other PBL models in the market, this model is standards-focused and substantial part of PBL completion takes place out of classroom in a digital environment. The book provides insight into Harmony's practices. It also shares data with the education community on how this approach has impacted students.
