2018-10-22   i2 STEM Month Begins

Ryan Banks Academy has partnered with i2Learning to bring STEAM month to our school. Over four weeks of i2 Month, students are tasked with solving a real world challenge that has been designed so that the class works collaboratively and uses integrated age appropriate concepts from English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Art to be successful, just as engineers and problem-solvers do in the real world. With this in mind, all i2 Month programs require students to read and write, do numerical calculations, use new technologies, study history and government, create, take risks, and find an artistic ways to express themselves. The real world context of the challenge gives students purpose to their learning.
