Glenside C.L.A.S.P. Students Learn STEM Lessons from Arcadia Grad Students
Every Tuesday and Wednesday for the past eight weeks, Arcadia University Assistant Professor of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education Augusto Macalalag, Jr., Ed.D., and some of his graduate students have been engaged in teaching STEM lessons to Glenside students who attend the after school C.L.A.S.P. program.
Macalalag’s “STEM teachers” taught different lessons every week, and engaged the students in learning how to create hoverboards and parachute men, plant watermelon, and much more.
“These Arcadia students will be teachers, and we are very thankful that they did their fieldwork with us,” said Supervisor of C.L.A.S.P. Peggy McManus. “Our kids were thrilled, and we hope to continue this wonderful partnership for years to come.”
