On April 12, both Rhame and Bowman Elementary Schools participated in the first STEM Day held at the Bowman Campus.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Student were separated into groups of three, split by grade levels of K-1, 2-3, and 4-6. The students were tasked with an activity or challenge they had to complete at four different 30-minute stations. Some activities that were included were penny archway challenge, build-a-rocket, spaghetti tower, catapults, homemade pulley, and many others. In total, there were 15 different stations. At the end, the students celebrated with pop floats served by members of the Bowman County School Board.
STEM Day is a way to challenge students to think critically and work as a team to complete a task. This is an activity the school plans to continue in the upcoming years. Participating in STEM is another way to prepare Bowman students for the future by incorporating 21st-century skills into the curriculum. In the future, the school district invites stakeholders to attend and observe another example of the quality education the students receive at Bowman County Schools.
