Students had an opportunity to work with ozobots during Makers Monday in the Library as well as in rotations in Grade 5 classes with Ms. Buckles and in Ms. Carlson's 2nd Grade class as well. Ozobots are little robots that use code to turn, spin, speed up and do other tricks. Miss Hintz's favorite trick is "The Tornado". Ask your students about them.

STEAM Fest and ART SHOW at Gattis on April 20th, 2017
Many of our students and families participated in our second annual STEAM Festival! Students choose from the STEAM topics to demonstrate interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math by integrating these subjects to produce a project. In addition we had an ARTOME Art show where all students had one piece of artwork on display and available for sale mounted and framed. Check out some of the highlights of the evening below. Many can be found on twitter with #GattisSTEAM17

Second Grade classes had a morning of doing STEM activities on Early Release day in April. They read a story about a lonely boy who wanted to make a playground for a roly poly and then found a rock in the shape of a sphere to play with his paper plate maze. Classes also used a multimedia presentation tool to give ideas and then students created their own Marble Maze.
