The Gifted Program Curriculum We do many projects throughout the year based on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). The students will do things, such as building a shelter for pilgrims that can withstand snow, rain, and wind. They will also build and measure bridges with q-tips, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, tape, and other materials. They will measure the bridge for certain height, length, and weight requirements. Students will build the world with clay, and identify all the layers of the layers of the Earth and their purpose. Another exciting activity students will participate in is called, "Mystery Detectives." In this activity they will have to solve crimes based on the clues they are given. These activities and many more will be introduced this year.
