Kindergarten through 4th grade students participate in Klein in Space Day of Design
Over 130 teams of students from 26 elementary schools participated in the Klein in Space Day of Design. Klein’s Day of Design offers students the opportunity to collaborate with each other, work with experts to deepen their knowledge of the Innovation Challenge and finalize plans for creating products. Kindergarten through 4th graders were challenged with packing for a trip to Mars and starting a community upon arrival. This cross-curricular challenge focuses on problem-solving, innovation, and creativity.
Additionally, over 100 students from each of our 5 high schools joined the fun and served as expert consultants for the teams. The high school volunteers assisted elementary students in thinking through their ideas and developing their plans further as they finalize their products.
I chose to volunteer because as a student of law enforcement, which is such a selfless career, I wanted to give back to the students…mentor them and help them with whatever they need for their project. – Klein Forest High School Student
Next month, each school will select one team from Kindergarten through 1st grade and one team from 2nd through 4th grade as campus winners that will be sent to the district competition. District winners, announced in the spring semester, will present at a School Board meeting and take a field trip to Space Center Houston.
We are so proud of all of our Pathway Explorers! To find out more about the Klein in Space Innovation Challenges, visit www.kleinisd.net/space.
