West Ada Math Symposium in action!!!! School hasn’t even started yet, but we have teachers learning and growing, ready to help students reach their unique potential. Special thanks to Dan Meyer for leading and guiding us through the symposium teaching the all important lesson of not rushing students through the learning ladder; from traction to abstraction. Teachers are busy thinking of ways students can know a very abstract math concept at the base, then spend time at each rung of the ladder until there is a need for the abstract. #wearewestada #proudtobewasd

Galileo STEM Academy's robotics teams competed at the Global Conference for Educational Robotics (GCER) last week in Norman, Oklahoma. Their varsity team placed 2nd in their division following a run-off match. The JV team placed 2nd in their division. The school was also awarded the KISS Award (Keep it simple students) for their robot(s) being simple yet highly effective and consistent in completing targeted tasks. Galileo’s design is not only simple, but also robust and well built. In addition, Galileo’s 4th and 5th grade JBC students completed multiple coding challenges over the five-day conference developing a stronger knowledge of C coding language. 📸 Photos: • The first is Calvin Knight and Aubry Oakey (not pictured is Abi Perdomo) on the Varsity Team. • Picture 2 is our JV team with Bailey Couture and Theron Bennett. • Picture 3 is our JBC team with Tavin Bennett, Johnathan Mullen, and Amelia Turner. #wearewestada #proudtobewasd
