North Glen’s STEM Teacher Brings Fun to Students Through Video Lessons

Mr. Fitzgerald, North Glen Elementary School's STEM teacher, has enlisted the help of his superhero friend to make his online lessons engaging and fun for students. Each week students are introduced to their STEM challenge with a video showing supervillains like Catwoman, The Riddler, and Penguin causing trouble. After students use the engineering design process to develop ways to solve the problem, they get to see Bat-Fitzgerald save the day! Developed with help from Mr. Schemmel, the EEE teacher from Solley Elementary, Mr. Fitzgerald's videos are keeping students' excitement for learning alive, even at home.
