Dixon Elementary

Our STEMArts teacher and Installation designer, Dienke Nauta, led an eight week workshop with 10 students from the Connected Math class at Dixon Elementary with the goal of visualizing and experiencing concepts in STEM. This project was designed by Eva Behrens to broaden the appeal of math concepts to visual and kinesthetic learners as well as linguistically and culturally diverse groups. Through a multisensory building project students applied 'out of the box' solutions to math problems, making the concepts meaningful and relevant in their lives. Dienke returned again to teach a Design your Park workshop and continues to work with Dixon Elementary on exciting STEM + arts programming.
