The Kealing After School STEM Club. Here you can see weekly hands–on activities, club officers, and pictures of our students having fun in the afterschool classroom.
UTeach Outreach applies inquiry-based strategies to help the students in the discovery process.
Club Starter: "
Lesson 1: "Today we became civil engineers!! The students learned what design aspects make a structure strong and able to withstand an earthquake. The students then constructed their own bridge out of toothpicks and marshmallows and they were put to the test on out earthquake simulator. I’m happy to report that all the bridges survived!"
Lesson 3: "Today, our young students had a glimpse of what it’s like to be a geologist. They were tasked with identifying rocks by their unique properties. These properties included hardness, streak, and magnetism. Unsurprisingly, all the students were able to successfully identify all of the minerals!"
Lesson 5: "This week we took a deep dive into the depths of space. We discussed how gravity affects everything with mass and how this influences the movement of our solar system. We also briefly talked about Neil deGrasse Tyson, a famous astrophysicist who has sparked many minds of the next generation of scientists, he is also a Longhorn alumni!"
