Moon Area School District (MASD) and Cornell School District (CSD) partnered to kick off the start of Remake Learning Days, which runs from May 15-26.
This particular collaboration was called DiscoverEd, which involved Mrs. Kleijnjans’ second grade class at Brooks Elementary travelling to CSD to trade places with Cornell second graders. Ten total school districts in the area participated in swapping classrooms with a partner school to spend time participating in STEM/STEAM activities that take place in another district.
At Cornell, Brooks students built robots out of recycled materials. Students decorated and designed their robot with their own unique twist. Each robot had to have two arms, two legs, and had to be completely covered in decorations.
At Brooks, Cornell students participated in a rotation that included seven different activities. Students took part in animation, engineering, coding, circuitry, and shape design challenges.
After students completed the STEM/STEAM activities, they headed to the University of Pittsburgh Alumni Hall to participate in a design challenge along with various schools from the area.
Afterwards, students returned to their respective schools and completed the day.
Many different hands-on learning events are available throughout the region for educators, students, and families to enjoy during Remake Learning Days. These "open house" style events feature STEM, STEAM, maker, and art exhibits from students and educators.
