Our Westside 6th graders got to attend STEM fest on Friday. They learned about infrared light, how to fly a plane, how to operate a robot and so much more! STEM fest helped students see how science, technology, engineering and math are used in many jobs today. Students came back excited to explore a new career in the STEM field. We are grateful for the chance they got to experience this amazing event!

Last week, a modern day mountain man, Scott "Grizzly" Sorensen, came to visit the fourth graders at Westside. His visit helped to bring to life everything that they have been talking about in their study of Utah. He told them about adventures that he has had, showed them animal furs, told them tall tales, and also told them about the adventures of mountain men who helped to settle Utah.

On Thursday the third grade classes had a visit from the Bean Museum at BYU. They learned about plants, animals, and habitats, and how they all interact with each other. As a final treat, the kids were able to pet the turtle that she brought, on their way back to class.
