Coyote Springs sixth-graders to look at math, engineering careers

Sue Tone

Coyote Springs Elementary School sixth-graders will hear from professionals in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, and then research and create a project of their own to present to parents and the community - thanks to an www.aps.com">Arizona Public Service/Phoenix Suns STEM mini-grant worth $1,400.

Anne Mayes, CSES math teacher, said Coyote Springs is offering its sixth-graders a chance to see what type of career opportunity they might find of interest. The grant money will help provide a three-week unit beginning April 23. Speakers from different career fields will come into the classroom and talk about their work. Mayes said she hopes to find an aeronautical engineer, for instance, and someone from the hospital.

"I'm looking for key figures within the community to show students what science, technology, engineering and math have to do within the world around them and also once they graduate," she said.

Then the students will research one of the areas, and choose a project that people can come see as a display or interactive task, somewhat like a science fair, Mayes said.

"We'll have a panel of judges look at the projects. On May 13, it will be open to the community. This will give students an opportunity to showcase and talk about it their work," she said. "So it's an academic experience, and also talking, showing and interacting, almost like a business presentation."
