Adrian 4th and 5th graders participated in the 2nd Annual Science Spooktacular on Halloween. Science Teachers Amy McVey and Treva Smith developed a day full of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics that were set-up in all six 4th and 5th grade classrooms. Each teacher in these grade levels constructed their own STEM challenge. Students eagerly rotated from class to class every 25 minutes to take on each of these challenges. The level of teaching and learning was impressive.
