In partnership with the Lyndhurst Foundation and the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Monteagle Elementary School received a Rigamajig kit as one part of the Arts Pathway Plan to infuse arts experiences throughout the school. Just last week, MES teachers attended training on how to use and incorporate “Rigamajig” into their curriculum.
Rigamajig is a new, large-scale kit designed for hands-on free play promoting creativity and innovation with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) focused learning.
The team at the Southeast Center for Education in the Arts has been working with schools in Marion County through multiple programs to help incorporate arts of all forms into the classroom. They have been providing materials, training, and modeling instruction in the grade-level classrooms and in related arts classrooms.
The students at MES have been enjoying working with the Rigamajig kit. They look forward to exploring, problem solving and working together to see what they can create with their hands.
