2018/19 STREAM Initiative at NCCS
Next year Northern Chautauqua Catholic School will be starting our STREAM School initiative. Over the summer, teachers will be trained on STREAM kits to teach our students hands on science, technology, religion, engineering, art/music, and math. We are very excited as we are one of the few schools in the area that will be implementing a program that has a set curriculum to teach our students in this area of study.
Here is an small overview of the STREAM program that will be offered at NCCS in the coming school year.
"All the world's a stage!"
This course is a fabulous way to guide students toward self-expression through a broad introduction to plays, monologues, mime, improvisation, theatre games, musical theatre, and stagecraft.
Each week brings a new opportunity to broaden students interests and unleash student creativity while gaining important life skills.
Science Scrimmage 2018: The CSI Experience
Solve mysteries using the science of forensics in this year’s Science Scrimmage. Students will observe trace evidence, investigate fingerprinting, extract DNA, create transfer patterns, and examine fiber and handwriting evidence to master problem solving like a true crime scene investigator.
Ignite the power of the real-life science application! Each school can enter a team to put their forensic skills to the test at the X-STREAM Games CSI Competition December 2nd at SJCI.
Our VEX Robotics design course offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich in career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math!
The program encourages teamwork, leadership and problem-solving among student design teams. Teachers can easily accommodate a variety of student skill levels. This year's X-STREAM game pieces and/or replacement part kits are available too.
Provide deeper learning! Challenge students to try their hand at advanced programming! Learn how with August training!
