Copperas Cove ISD elementary students are making 3D objects to get students excited about science, technology, engineering and math projects.

Students were involved in activities using things like toothpicks, marshmallows, jelly beans and popsicle sticks to build 3D shapes and structures. Some students were also using computers to code and upload powerpoint slides.

Through these activities, students are taught to be logical thinkers, effective communicators and technologically, scientifically and mathematically literate.

Teresa Ingram, Halstead Library Media Specialist, believes Halstead is preparing its students for future success in the world of work.

“Employment in occupations related to STEM are projected to grow more than 9 million between the years 2012-2022,” Ingram said.
