Students learn STEM, soft skills through workforce development partnership
The cafeteria at Dell Rapids Middle School cooked up something different recently when fifth graders, business representatives and educators put on a one-of-a-kind STEM lesson.
The effort, led and coordinated by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation, brought together partners Gage Brothers Concrete Products and Journey Group for a lesson that include a hands-on look at how cement becomes concrete.
Along the way, students learned about science and math-related concepts and the careers they might pursue in related industries.
Here’s a look at how the activity came together.
