STEAMing Ahead with an Obstacle Course Design Challenge
Coelho, Jeffrey D.; Contreras, Guadalupe
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v33 n2 p13-17 2020
Many educators are now being tasked to incorporate STEAM education to facilitate meaningful learning and engage students in critical thinking. STEAM education may be enhanced through integration of other school subjects such as physical education. The purpose of this article is to describe a STEAM educational approach to foster the creation of an obstacle course design challenge for elementary school-aged children. Physical educators should take advantage of the enthusiastic interest in obstacle course racing, and the national focus on STEM and STEAM education, to foster an interdisciplinary approach to children's overall development.
