We are very excited to have our GT students presenting at the Global Education Conference sponsored by the US Department of Education next Thursday from DISD’s offsite curriculum center located at the Dublin Historical Museum.
Dublin Elementary students, acting as a research scientist, studied a local museum artifact, and will be celebrating the 300th birthday of the invention of the STEAM engine. The STEAM engine invention generated an industrial revolution, which encouraged the creation of many other inventions and creations.
Students will be sharing a local STEAM artifact with the world next Thursday at 2 pm from the Dublin Historical Museum. Student productions can be viewed on Mrs. Donna Lewis’s website. Mrs. White and Dublin Intermediate GT students will be sharing research from Dublin Intermediate about the STEAM engine. Mrs. Hamilton and Dublin High School digital art students will be sharing art productions from reflections about STEAM’s past, present, and future.
Students have the opportunity to think about how STEAM has affected Dublin’s past, present, and future and will be sharing their ideas with people around the planet.
Mrs. Lewis’s students will be leaving on Thursday, at 12:15 pm, to visit Dublin Bottling Works and will get to tour the bottling plant. Students will be encouraged to think about how science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math were used at the bottling plant in the past, present, and future.
After the tour, students will be escorted to the Dublin Historical Museum to participate as a featured speaker in the Global Education Conference, which is being broadcasted to over 14,000 members internationally.
Parents and the general community are encouraged to attend. Please congratulate your child and Mrs. Lewis on trying a new approach and for leading the nation in STEAM and student led programming.
We also encourage ALL parents to think about attending the Community Computer Lab, held on Tuesday nights at Dublin Intermediate school from 5-6:30 pm.
