STEM at Macdonough

Students at Macdonough School are exposed to interdisciplinary units of study that have at their foundation a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students are provided the opportunity to become independent learners and thinkers through Project-Based Learning.

All of our projects focus on the Engineering Design Process in order to solve real-world problems.

Engineer of the Month

Our Engineer of the Month is Jhon from Mrs. Paul’s second grade class! Second grade students spent the past trimester using the Engineering Design Process to create a map of an important location in Macdonough School for newcomers. Jhon and his teammates focused on his classroom. Jhon is a team player, listens to his teammates, provides his input and opinion, and stays on task during STEM-related activities. Keep up the great work, Jhon! Jhon will be recognized during our December SURFS Assembly.
