Hello, My name is Mr. Mitchell Swords! I am excited to teach STEM this year! I have been teaching since 2008. I graduated from Shippensburg University with a Degree in Elementary Education and got my Masters in Instructional Media at Wilkes University. We will be doing many amazing things in STEM class! We use projects to learn about the world and the tools we have at our disposal through the engineering and scientific method processes. We will be learning how to use the laptops and iPads we have for school to create, connect, and work together. We will also be learning the basics of how computer programs, and games work through our coding mini unit! We will also be putting the coding and engineering aspect into practice to solve problems involving Lego animals and machines that we create in class. I am excited to work with you this year as we learn and grow together.
