A connection to science and hands-on learning at Montgomery School is being shared throughout the school division, trustees were told during the Celebrating Excellence portion of the Board of Education's Nov. 23 meeting.
The school's maker's lab offers learning activities in three forms: tinkering to learn, making to learn, and application projects. During the pandemic, Vice Principal David Crowell adapted the program to create a science kit loaner program that will be shared with other elementary schools. Teachers that borrow the kits also receive access to lessons and assessment materials. In return, teachers and students who access the materials are asked to give back by adding to the collection of resources.
