Students at Hamilton Elementary School of Engineering and Technology are excited about learning by connecting with their world in ways that are fun and personally meaningful. The construction of our 21st century learning facility is all about using space innovatively to create the wonderment of science so that the entire school becomes a teaching tool.
Our highly trained instructional staff uses Engineering is Elementary (EIE), the nation’s leading elementary engineering curriculum, to build our students’ science and math skills as well as integrate science, engineering, and technology. Developed by the Museum of Science in Boston, this fun, flexible, inquiry-based curriculum is the heart of our Magnet Program and engages students in hands-on, cross-disciplinary activities that pose real-world challenges to boost 21st century skills like creativity and teamwork.
During the day, students also participate in core subject classes such as reading, math, social studies and writing. Robotics, music, art, PE classes are included in their weekly schedule as well. Another class students attend is the Project Based Learning Lab, where they get to work a flexible environment to solve real world problems. Our students also can sign up enrichment courses in our After School, 21st CCLC program that covers a wide variety of topics and areas of study such as golf, chess, robotics, drumline.
