The above word cloud symbolizes the vision of what STEM projects are in the Dysart Unifies School District. The word cloud, created with Wordle
, was made by the STEM work group by aggregating the words used to describe STEM projects. The DUSD Stragegic Plan
calls for every student in grades kindergarten to eighth grade to complete on STEM project, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, every year beginning in the year 2012.
Beginning in the Spring Semester of 2010, approved STEM projects for grades 7 and 8 will be located in the district curriculum tool, iPLAN
. Subsequent grade levels will be added each year until all K-8 grade levels are represented in the Spring of 2012.
