Sioux Falls' innovative Lowell Elementary Math, Science and Technology School is taking a fresh approach to K-5 instruction.
According to KELO, each lesson is fused with principles that relate back to math and science. The early results? More engaged learners.
Classes follow the same curriculum as other schools in the district, but math, science and technology is integrated into English, even Art.
Principal Judith Spitzli says, "They are actively engaged. That's what we want to do."
First year Lowell Principal Judith Spitzli says the hands-on and problem solving approach is working, and kids are able to tap into subjects they enjoy.
Second-grader Morgan Palmer says, "We make parachutes, we learn about air."
Air was the lesson of the day in Morgan Palmer's second-grade class.
Spitzli says, "We have 90 minutes everyday whether you're in kindergarten or fifth grade. Ninety minutes every day that's devoted to math and science."
