Alhambra Elementary School District

QESST Scholar doing outreach at Alhambra, with K-12 students.

In an ongoing effort to create a culture of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), Arizona State University’s QESST program is proud to team up with the Alhambra Elementary School District to offer monthly opportunities for K-12 students and teachers to engage with STEM subjects. On Oct. 4 this program was kicked off. QESST provided four unique lessons that consisted of solar ovens, solar pumps, solar cars and a lesson on electricity and magmatism where students participated in exciting hands-on STEM workshops, geared toward elementary and middle school students. These lessons were taught by teachers and ASU’s QESST scholars.
The focus of STEM Saturdays is to enlighten, educate and entertain students as teachers and educators simultaneously learn and share ideas toward helping kids succeed in the classroom and beyond.
