STEM Opportunities for Students
Trimble Local Schools has partnered with Hocking College TRIO program to offer some great opportunities for our students. With these partnerships, we have been able to include additional programs for hands-on learning. Trimble Middle School will be adding audio/visual club and graphic design, while continuing robotics and drone programming.
Audio Visual Club is designed to teach students how to create their own videos and work with the video in post-production. Students will learn how to create a school news and announcement program. They will also learn how to write scripts, set up, record and produce a video.
Graphic design students will be learning how to draw using Computer assisted drawing. Students will be using drawing pads to create and design. Students will also be able to create their own artwork and comics, and spaces for interior design, while exploring the Tinkercad design program.
Robotics and Drones is not brand new to our middle school students, but received an “upgrade” thanks to TRIO. Students will be able to pick a focus of study to learn how to program. Using a Vex IQ robot or Mambo drone connected to the student's Chromebook, the students will be able to learn how to code. Students will code their device to move through a maze or fly through hoops. This class will conclude with weekly challenges to practice their new programming skills.
