White Oaks Public School

Thames Valley DSB
Grant: Fall 2021

Grade 7 Teacher, Richard Dew at White Oaks PS in London, Ontario applied for a $500 grant to teach coding of robots with Microbits to his class. His goal was to “bring higher thinking challenges to students in their Math and Science classes.” The Microbits purchased will help him teach engineering of small-scale wind turbines. Students working below grade level will also be helped with their studies through the use of Snap Circuits. Their STEM grant will allow for cross-curricular, differentiated instruction, that will allow students to grapple with real world, hands-on, applications in STEM concepts such as coding, circuitry and renewable energy.

Here are some great photos sent to STEM Camp Foundation by Richard.
