Shape It Up

Through the generosity of WQED and the PBS Ready to Learn Grant, McAnnulty is hosting spring sessions of the Masterminds afterschool program for first-grade students. The focus of the program is to promote creative thinking and collaboration that will engage students in a variety of STEAM activities and projects. The students will focus on STEAM concepts as they work with a variety of resources including: Tangram Shapes, BeeBots and Osmo Technology, 2D & 3D Magnatile Structures, Shape Shifter Creations, and Addition and Subtraction concepts. Students are excited to have this opportunity to explore new concepts involving problem-solving strategies to enhance their learning!
