When I called in today for the weekly Innovate Dallas check-in, I was surprised to find Jamie Richardson in the STEAM Machine. Two years ago, it was just a dream – today it is a reality.
He had just finished its first outing: a trip over to Whitworth, a nearby elementary school. His middle school students were trained as ambassadors and they led fourth-graders through multiple stations on the bus. They had three sets of students that morning, and by the third set, the ambassadors were really rocking. Everyone was fully engaged and the learning was contagious.
