Riverside Presbyterian Day School

STEAM

RPDS STEAM classes for 1st-6th Grade meet in the Makerspace Innovation classroom. Here, children are exposed to a multitude of concepts from science, technology, engineering, art, and math. In this student-centered environment, students take charge of their own learning by actively problem solving, working in groups, persevering, creating, and having fun. With a plethora of high and low tech tools to learn from and create with, students are exposed to essential skills from computational thinking to how to sew on a button that will help them further develop into lifelong learners. The RPDS makerspace is home to a variety of educational robots, multitudes of circuitry technology, 3D printers, a laser cutter, as well as tools for wood crafting, textiles, paper craft, art supplies, and miscellaneous recyclables just waiting for a child's imagination to transform into something spectacular.
