To culminate their most recent unit of inquiry, students in Mrs Lind’s, Mr. Neiswander’s and Mr. Radtke’s classes prototyped “Statues of Responsibility.” The fourth graders had been inquiring into the central idea; Rights and responsibilities mobilize societal decision making.
Saturday, January 28 was the 4th annual Mountain Lion Vex IQ Robotics Challenge hosted by Alpine Elementary IB World School in St Vrain Valley Schools in Longmont, CO. It was spectacular! 22 teams from around Longmont competed in several events.
Alpine strives to be an innovative school, applying educational best practice and keeping student-centered learning at the forefront of what we do. We recognize that education, as a profession, is highly collaborative. Teachers at Alpine love to share their practice with others, modeling inquiry-based lessons, sharing ideas, and demonstrating the amazing learning capacity of students. Particularly since implenting STEM 4 years ago, we have opened our doors to educators from across the country, to observe teaching and learning and to teach us as well.
