•        ELEMEnTS is the name of the gifted and talented elementary curriculum in Washington Twp. It stands for Elementary Learners Engaged in Mathematics, Engineering, new Technologies and Science. As you can probably see, the curriculum is heavily influenced by STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education.  The rationale behind this is that STEM-careers are on the rise and technology is something that most children are drawn towards and enjoy working with.  Throughout the year we will be working on collaborative, problem-based projects, projects that will hopefully be challenging, but enjoyable.
