STEAM Culture

Arts Integration

Through arts-integrated instruction, our students develop creative problem-solving skills and perseverance. Teaching through the arts can present difficult concepts in a variety of engaging ways, allowing students an expressive tool to make real-world connections. 

Robotics

Students at West Jackson are exposed to and given the opportunity to utilize a wide variety of technology on a daily basis. They code and create with their one-to-one devices, Ozobots, Bee-Bots, Dash-Bots, RoboRobo, Lego Mindstorms, Sphero-Bots, green screens, and 3D printers. 

Georgia STEAM Day

Inspired by the book Only One You, students at WJES painted their own rockfish for the front of our school. This is an artistic reminder that it is each person's individual responsibility to make the world a better place.

STEAM Night

STEAM Night at WJES has become an annual event! We had great success during our last STEAM Night on November 7th, 2019! Our WJES families were able to visit many different stations that integrated Science and Math and also allowed kids to experience hands-on learning! Sphero robots, slime, tornadoes in a bottle, gumdrop houses, and the STAR Lab were just a few of the engaging learning activities!

Career and Innovation Day

This annual day allows our students to become familiar with local industries that use innovative practices. Our business partners and family members are able to share their careers and expertise as a way of preparing our students to be leaders of innovation in the 21st century.
