Pink Elementary School, with the support of Pink PTA, the Frisco ISD science curriculum team and STEMscopes, proudly hosted a family-friendly event with the goal to motivate, inspire and engage students to make a difference in the world by digging deeper into environmental issues. STEMscopes, developed by Rice University, is a curriculum resource utilized by FISD elementary schools to provide inquiry-based learning opportunities.
The STEMrangers curriculum introduced students to a water conservation mission through a video by Philippe Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau, and a series of lessons over the two weeks prior to the high-spirited event. The fun-filled evening teemed with hands-on learning experiences with a variety of interactive stations that allowed students to participate in environmentally conscious activities including: making paper, composting, making natural cleaners, planting seeds and building a terrarium.
Pink is the first campus in Texas to host the science celebration with the goal for students to develop a plan that would ensure safe, clean water is available for humans, plants and animals in our community and around the world.
Teachers at Pink, under the direction of Principal Danielle Record, embrace a multidisciplinary approach to STEM education and the development of 21st century skills for students through continued parent and community outreach.
