Prairie STEM taught the eighth students at Northstar the basics of drones in which many of the students flew them for the first time. The students’ flying experience included obstacles to fly through. They flew them in the gym which was a perfect amount of space. Everyone had a great time.
Students rotated between 3 stations. Their field trip to fly was cancelled and we were called in for a wow factor. Station 1 – Droneblocks, students programmed drones in a simulated environment (city and mars) Station 2 – VR students flew biplanes in a WWI Warfighter simulator, the settings abided by real world aerodynamics. Station […]
Second-grade students at Howard Kennedy had fun in hands-on lessons on pollination and seed dispersal in August and September.
The second graders created their own bees for the pollination lesson and observed how the body and legs of the bee are specially made to attract pollen. They flew their bees from a pollinated flower to another flower. We looked at some real pollen in the digital microscope. In the seed dispersal lesson, the students […]
The middle school students at St. Cecilia Parochial School had lots of fun creating movies using Green Screen on February 23, 2022.

Prairie STEM provided The Science of Sound instruction to middle school students at Cornerstone Christian School on December 17th, 2021. The Doppler Effect was demonstrated using drones and a blindfolded student to perceive sounds as the source moved closer and further away. We used a vacuum chamber to demonstrate how sound waves do not travel […]
