The organizations teamed up with Carlsbad Municipal Schools (CMS) to distribute Mystery Science-themed science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) kits to over 1,000 4thand 5thgraders. The kits provide multiple weeks’ worth of hands-on activities to help students understand the New Mexico STEM Ready Science standards.
“Changes in learning environment come with many challenges, but we can still help students stay on-pace with their educational goals,” said Devon Senior Community Relations Specialist Shannon Johnson. “We hope Carlsbad students enjoy hours of experimenting, learning and discovering with these STEM kits.”
The kits delve into geology and chemistry. Fourth graders explore the world of rocks and the processes that formed the earth’s surface, and 5thgraders experience how chemical reactions enable us to make new materials out of the ones we have. The lessons in each kit build off each other and encourage critical thinking and scientific understanding.
“The Mystery Science kits fully engage students through hands-on experiments, teaching them the Next Gen Science standards,” said CMS Director of Elementary Education Kim Arrington. “Students are learning, creating, wondering and solving real-world problems thanks to Devon Energy and Nuclear Waste Partnership!”
