Project Lead The Way in Action!

Students below explore the various parts of the VEX Robotics kit (how they can be connected, which pieces are compatible) and practice the engineering design process. Students were given criteria and constraints to create a toy.  They then followed the engineering design process to explore ideas, design the toy, build the model, and then evaluate and explain their design. Students worked collaboratively in teams of three to complete their designs! 

Summer STEM Camp

San Ardo had the opportunity to host a Summer STEM Camp for the south Monterey County Schools.  Thanks to a donation from Chevron Corporation and through efforts of the Monterey County Office of Education this unique experience was brought to students in the area! 

Students had the ability to explore Forensics, Physics, Earth Science, and Real World Science with instructors from the Monterey County Office of Education.  Students pictured above can be seen launching their rockets and experimenting with gravity!   

Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit Comes to San Ardo 

San Ardo fifth through eighth grade students were given the opportunity to explore hands-on activities and projects about energy, technology, and sciences involved with the oil and gas industry.  This program was made available thanks to a donation from Chevron.  

The Mobile Oilfield Learning Unit (MOLU) is a 1.2 million dollar engaging traveling exhibit.  It features six self contained learning centers with curriculum-based, hands-on activities about energy and the technologies and sciences involved with the oil and gas industry. The curriculum for each of the 24 activities is based on national and Texas state standards (TEKS). Although the MOLU is geared to 5th grade students, it is also appropriate for other age groups.
