ALC teachers attended a 3-day training last week on how to incorporate projects into their lesson plans. Project Based Learning proposes giving students a project with a probelm to be solved. The projects also should involve the learning of required subject curriculum. We are so grateful to our teachers who go above and beyond to provide creative learning opportunities for our students.

The STEM Action Center is an incredible site for students, parents, and educators to gather and receive information about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. There is an interactive Curiosity Library containing videos, power points, podcasts, and webinars. Scholarship opportunities, web resources, ideas, contests, and company event information are all a part of what makes this such a great site.
