"INVENTING A HEALTHY FUTURE"

Rosewood Park School is inviting all our families to finish the year strong by creating a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Project.

All projects will be displayed on our website, with grade-level winners to be showcased at our Virtual Open House on Thursday, May 27th at 5 pm.   Please read through the information on this page for all details regarding your family projects.

Our theme is "Inventing a Healthy Future" with our focus subtopics: Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, and Healthy Environment.   We ask our students and families to use it as a guide to build, create and structure their projects.

THEME EXPLAINED

Increased screen time and busy schedules have led to a number of health issues in the RPS community, including anxiety, decreased physical activity, and decreased mental health.  Use the disciplines of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) to help us all adopt a healthier outlook.
 
Invent a tool, build a structure, explain a process that will heal our minds, bodies, and/or environment. 
 
STEAM can educate, but it can also encourage healthy eating, exercise, and life balance.On the left-hand side are a few creative project and invention ideas to help you get started. Feel free to create something different and innovative. 

 

VIDEO RECOMMENDATIONS 

Student video submissions should include: 
  • An Introduction (name, grade, teacher) 
  • An Explanation of the STEAM health concept 
  • An Engaging Presentation of the project

In total, each student presentation should be approximately 3 minutes in length.  Sound effects and graphics are encouraged, but not required.

Horizontal videos, please!   

SOUND QUALITY A MUST!

Video presentations may be new to RPS students and families.  We encourage our student presenters and families to be relaxed and let their personalities shine.  We discourage reading from a script.  There is an opportunity to move beyond traditional tri-fold projects. Video projects teach students to plan, organize, write, communicate, collaborate and analyze.  Video requires students to be able to express themselves as effectively through moving imagery as with the written word.  Families are welcomed to work together as a TEAM.
