With the new NGSS, elementary science is at a turning point. Our 21st Century learners must be educated in a way that best meets their immediate needs and prepares them for careers of the future ~ careers that may have yet to be named! My focus in on integrating technology into my fourth grade curriculum in a way that will strengthen my students math and science skills. The Maker Movement employs many engineering concepts and brings to life the reading, writing, and arts in which students are engaged in their elementary classrooms. The STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, Math) model connects these components!
