Borman Elementary: Exploring STEM from Kindergarten

Students at Borman dedicate their "be kind" mural (USAF)
An excellent afternoon yesterday at Borman Elementary School on the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. I (Jake) began to meet with the Kinder team's classes, and explore their classrooms in preparation for our planned partnership to help the children and teachers to learn science through active exploration leveraging their existing resources for maximum effectiveness.

We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with the Kinder team at Borman and offer them continuing support -- which we then hope will result in strategies that can be spread across other kindergarten classrooms, not only in the US, but also providing resources that could be used by schools on US military bases worldwide.

Supporting STEM exploration in kindergarten is essential to develop learners who are investigative, creative, inquiring thinkers from the very start of their education -- sparking interests that can last the lifetime of their school experiences, and beyond.
