Mt. Hope STEAM SchoolSchool in Lansing, Michigan
Congratulations to the Mt. Hope STEAM 5th Grade Basketball Team for an undefeated season. Special thanks is extended to Coach Dortch for all she does on behalf of our students as a teacher and coach.
As part of celebrating Black History Month and enriching the 5th grade Social Studies curriculum, students were able to visit the Charles Wright Museum of African American History. Students were led on a guided tour of the Inspiring Minds: African Americans in Science and Technology exhibit. This exhibit highlights African American trailblazers, contemporaries and careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The students in the littleBits class worked on a design challenge under constraints: Within 15 minutes using only materials from a list, design and build a device that can move one paper ball from one square to another square that is 3ft away. Students used an engineering design process to create, test (play), improve (remix), and share their model with their peers.
