Greater Los Angeles | Full STEAM Ahead

May 02, 2019 | Regional Spotlight

Maria Morrisson, Blended Learning Manager, supports teachers with integrating new instructional approaches in the classroom. We asked Maria to tell us about one thing she is really proud of and here’s what she shared:

“New Heights Charter School entrusted me with furthering the school-wide culture of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). I started an initiative to help third graders learn coding, robotics, and engineering.

With our latest project, students are constructing playable games out of everyday materials like cardboard, yarn, and duct tape. They will get to show off their creations at the school’s annual Learning Museum which is open to parents, teachers, and community members.”
