Welcome to James Island Elementary School!

5th Grade goes to BOEING!

5th grade recently took a trip to Boeing in alignment with our STEAM initiative this year.  Students learned about the features of the Boeing Dreamliner 787.  With specific roles such as engineer 1, test pilot, money management, and mechanic, students worked collaboratively to design an airplane that would fly the farthest and come in under budget.  This was a fantastic opportunity!  Students listened to Boeing employees discuss how to have a successful STEAM career: 1- Set a Goal 2- Make A Plan 3-Work Hard!
