Friday, April 28th: Dickerson’s Annual STEAM day for students!
We are excited to announce a new STEM partnership between the Atlanta Braves, Cobb Schools and Dickerson Middle School. The Braves have partnered with an organization called the Science of Sport that has developed a supplemental curriculum resource integrating science, math and physical education standards using baseball. Our school received access to digital supplemental standards based lessons correlated to our standards for math, science, and health/PE and training including from former Braves and Falcons elite athlete Brain Jordan!
This Friday is not only our annual STEAM day for students, but we will be using the “Science of Baseball” and the BRAVES as our theme for this year.
A few of our special events include:
- Dickerson Café will be serving Braves Burgers
- Kona Ice Truck will be here selling Kona Ice (students may choose a $4 or $5 dollar option – thanks DMS Foundation!). This will occur during FAF.
- All teachers will be integrating the curriculum with a theme of baseball and a combination of science, math, technology, arts (music, drama, visual arts, etc.), engineering, and/or math!
- Students are encouraged to wear Braves gear or Braves colors.
Go Braves, Go Dickerson and Go Team!!!
