STEM Learning Hub

STEM Learning Hub

Students at Vista Hills will be taking part in this exciting project this year.

We will be interacting with other classes outside of our school, city and country to share ideas on STEM changes that we are given through out the year.                      

Meet our Friends in New York:
Meet our Friends in Waterloo:
We will be using the hashtag #STEMhub  to follow what our friends are doing through out this project and to share our learning with others around the world

Each Learning Hub will draw a challenge each month and we will collaborate using our blogs.  Each student is responsible to find a creative solution to the challenge on their personal blog.  Students will then give feedback and share their thoughts on what their learning hub peers have created.  

List of a few of our STEM Challenges:
