STEM and STEAM programs began at Manteca Unified School sites in September 2015.  We added Banta, Ripon and River Islands Schools in 2016.  We also conducted a very successful STEAM/STEM Summer Camps in June/July 2018 & 2019 at Sequoia, French Camp, Ripon and Banta Schools.  We held our second rocketry classes at French Camp School and had a very successful rocket launch in February 2018 and July of 2019.  During the 2019-20 school year, the STEAM/STEM program will travel to various schools on a 2-week rotating basis.  Click on the schedule link below.
STEAM/STEM  in the classroom

Students get the opportunity to learn how to engineer Lego models, experiment with robotics, and are introduced to programming using Lego WeDo Kits and Lego Mindstorm kits with tablets and IPads.  Students are challenged to fabricate fully operational projects that can be programmed to come alive.  Students also get the chance to see and use a 3D printer from the original structures they created in Minecraft.  Students are having fun while learning how to design, engineer and program projects with teamwork, communication, and creative thinking.
