Mr. Jake Byrom
Welcome to the webpage of Mr. Byrom! This is my second year here at Bradley Elementary School District and I am very excited to continue with our STEM Program. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Education from Olivet in Bourbonnais and am endorsed in Middle and Secondary Social Science as well as Middle School Science. We are going to have a lot of fun this year and I'm sure we are all looking forward to it!
Seventh graders will work with the Engineering Design Process to design, build, and test houses for different climate scenarios. They will also learn how healthy heart valves work as well as taking on the role of a biomedical engineer to see how a heart valve translpant. We will finish out the trimester with learning computer programming language, computer animation, and even robotics!
Eighth graders are focusing on space and space travel. We will be building rockets out of water/soda bottles and learning how rockets work in relation to Newton's Laws. We will also be looking at what it would take for mankind to return to the moon and establish a lunar colony by taking part in a contest by NASA to design a lunar colony on the moon. The winning design will be used by NASA and receive a prize!
