Calling All Career Presenters

At the elementary level, career development education is all about promoting awareness of the world of work and exposing children to a wide variety of occupations. Each spring we schedule Career Presenters to come to Brockman and give a 30-45 presentation to our students about their profession. If you or someone you know might be interested in volunteering as a Career Presenter, please fill out this brief form found at the link below.

March Community Service

Brockman’s March Community Service is collecting coins for March of Dimes. This year’s ambassadors are 2 employees of Richland One whose son was born at 23 weeks weighing 1 lb. 7 oz. He spent 77 days in the NICU and because of the lifesaving research of the March of Dimes, “Tres” is now a health little boy.

March 18-29th. Brockman we will collect “coins” from each class or students can buy a paper cut-out for $1 to have name displayed on bulletin board. Help support healthy, strong babies through a contribution to the March of Dimes.

You can also make an online contribution at https://www.marchforbabies.org/team/brockmanbears

STEM Club

 

The STEM Club has been busy introducing computer programming to our 4th and 5th grade students after school.   We very much appreciate our corporate sponsor, SC ENT, for their outstanding support and funding for this course.

This is the second year Dr. Kosciusko has volunteered to lead the program after pioneering its construction last year and its evolution this year.  This is the first year he has introduced elementary grade student teachers (who had completed the course last year) and they are taking turns learning to run the classroom.  So far it has been a wonderful experience for our children.  The student teachers get to see just how difficult is to lead and the students have been learning a great deal about the logic behind computer programming.  Here is a sample of some of the work accomplished half way through the course, programmed by one of our STEM Club students.  The game created by the student is on the left.  The block coding is on the right.  The word coding corresponding to the block coding can be seen below.  There will be a final project competition for the final class in April.
