Benton Elementary School revised its curriculum this year to focus more on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics or STEM fields. One volunteer is picking apart a favorite pastime among his students, video games, to teach them about all these subjects.
Lucas and Kiren are video game designers based in Columbia. They are currently working on a video game called ‘Alphamon Apple’s Adventure’ which they think is going to turn a few heads.
This week on the show, a club at Benton Elementary teaches math, science and technology to students using video games. Plus, we’ll introduce you to the new principal of Shepard Boulevard Elementary in Columbia.
Unaccredited schools in Kansas City and St. Louis could have a huge impact on a number of school districts in each of those metropolitan areas. Plus, teacher tenure could see changes – and we’ll give you the results of the Columbia school board races we previewed the last couple of weeks.
