Welcome to the Barnum Elementary School Media Center and STEM Room
BES Media Center
This site is a resource for Barnum Elementary's students, families, and staff.
The media center is not just a location for finding books. Media centers in our schools are now a location where the entire inquiry and creating process takes shape. Students will question, investigate, create, and share their learning while in our media center.
The students get to make choices in their learning. They choose what they would like to research, how to go about creating, and choose the means to sharing their knowledge with the world.
We have opportunities for our students to create in the media center as well as in the STEM room. We are a makerspace that provides various materials (Lego robotics, cardboard creations, 3D printing, crocheting, virtual worlds, electronics kits, and much more).
