Why STEM at Hoover?

Hoover, the First Lady, was the first woman to graduate with a degree in geology from Stanford University.

What will we do?

Students will complete a "Hoover Engineering Notebook," guided by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), the Iowa Core, and Project Lead the Way. Students will also meet National Council for Social Studies (NCSS) and Iowa Core Standards in Social Studies.

By participating in STEM Days at the Hoover Museum students will use their communication skills and continue building literacy skills through the use of writing prompts and scavenger hunts in their engineering notebook.
