On October 14, Harmony Science Academy-El Paso educator Ali Dal had a STEM presentation at Clint ISD. Mr. Dal provided several professional development sessions regarding project based learning, STEM education, and designing a solar car where his student team helped answer questions. “This is another way the Harmony Schools in El Paso reaches out to the community and help our local districts,” says Maria Isaac, Director of Communications and Outreach. A week later the Solar Car team also presented their work at Western Technical Institute for Car Show in El Paso. Students described their learning experience throughout this complex project and shared what it takes to successfully build a solar car. Harmony El Paso district will also be organizing the first SeaPerch Training (underwater robotics) in El Paso later in the month, which will bring together educators in the region. Harmony is spearheading this initiative with local ISDs in El Paso to form a SeaPerch committee and prepare El Paso students for the regional competition on Feb 25, 2017 to be held in San Antonio.
