Waukee APEX Students Create Content for Peers in the Student Personalized Learning System

Today we have student bloggers sharing the content they have created in the Student Personalized Learning System:

The Exploration of Health Sciences and Medicine students through the APEX, Aspiring Professional Experience, program have created a curriculum for 3-5th graders about how to make your brain healthy. The creators are: Safire Harter, a senior at Waukee High School, Janjay Peters, a senior at Waukee High School, and Chloe Anderson, a junior at Waukee High School.

APEX is a program through Waukee High School, where students have the opportunity to work with outside companies, and gain experience in the business world.

This course was designed to help students learn about a specific career or field that they might want to pursue later on in life and is intended for elementary age kids. The content is meant to teach these young students about:
  • Why the brain is important 
  • What the brain does 
  • How to make your brain healthy 
  • Careers in health 

The reason we chose the topic brain health was because we wanted to do something that we were all interested in. We all like children, and are also fascinated by the brain. In this project we decided to incorporate both of those aspects into the final product.

This module was added to the Student Personalized Learning System, and can be found on the AEA website. There are also many other lessons available to look at, so feel free to browse and maybe learn a thing or two in the process.

AEA Learning Online thanks these students and their teacher Anne Boesen for their hard work on this module. To learn more about these modules and others, you can visit http://learning.aeak12online.org/ click on catalog then Health and Physical Education and the tab Statewide or enter the criteria in the search.
