The Jackson Hole Children’s Museum’s K-5th Grade STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Programs are developed in collaboration with grade level teachers from Teton County School District #1 (TCSD #1). These programs:
- Provide an inquiry-based approach to encourage curricular understanding of science and engineering concepts.
- Follow the Wyoming State Science Standards and the K-5 science progressions of TCSD #1.
- Encourage students to ask questions, solve problems, draw inferences and make their own conclusions.
Over 1,300 K-5th grade students (approximately 80 classes), participate in these programs each year. During the 2018-19 school year, we implemented the following programs:
- Kindergarten Push and Pull Workshop and Animal Habitats Workshop
- 1st Grade Mimicry Lab
- 2nd Grade Properties of Materials, Engineering and Design Workshop
- 3rd Grade Force and Motion Workshop
- 4th Grade Energy Lab
- 5th Grade Cabbage Chemistry Lab
Thank you to our STEAM sponsors, who make these programs possible!
