Pursuing Excellence for Tomorrow's Challenges
Leaphart Engineering Arts Program (LEAP) offers a school-wide engineering program. At Leaphart Elementary School, engineering is not what teachers and students do; it is the method for how teachers and students approach teaching and learning. Engineering concepts are interwoven into all subject areas through the LEAP Design Process. Students are engaged in collaborative, hands-on learning experiences that highlight engineering concepts and ideas.
Students at Leaphart incorporate the design process in their daily routines. Teaching the design process provides teachers with a way to model to all students that everyone can design solutions to a given problem. Our engineers are exposed to: LEGO Education, STEM, 3D Touch printers, music engineering, standards-based design challenges, NASA Explorer activities, and engineering career opportunities.
