    • Dixon Road Third Graders Learn About S.T.E.M.

      On March 29, 2019, Dixon Road students had the opportunity to learn how the concepts of science, technology, engineering, and math can be found in daily activities when they visited United Skate of America in Raleigh. The students started their day with one hour of S.T.E.M. education and then were served lunch from the onsite café. Third grader Chase Charpentiar said, “I liked the tug of war friction experiment and seeing how roller skates work.” The Educators taught them how STEM principles exist in almost every part of life through the following exciting lessons: The Science of Roller Skating; Motion and Rink Design; Music, Math, & Roller Skating; Super Sound! Acoustics & Rink Design; and Engineering Magic & Lighting. These lessons demonstrated the relationship between S.T.E.M. and roller skating motion, friction, force, sound waves, Doppler Effect, light waves, design and geometry. “I learned a lot of new things from their science girl. If you want to go forward you push backwards the opposite way you want to go - it’s called force and motion.” stated skater Julia Bragg.

    • First Graders Show Off Their Coding Skills at DPI

      Some very special first graders from DRES were offered the opportunity to showcase their computer science skills at the NCDPI CS4NC expo in December. Out of the 16 teams selected from across the state to participate in the showcase, DRES' group was one of them. Four first graders, Jeremiah, Mason, Maelee, and Emmalee demonstrated how they are learning and utilizing computer science in their schools at the expo. They presented their project, “Howdy Do with Dash”. The students, guided by their coaches, Jackie Tingen and Kelly Stewart, interviewed the attendees using Dash, a cute little blue robot that the students coded to respond to voice, navigate, dance, sing, and many other exciting functions.
