STEM Overview

S.T.E.M stands for Science, Technology,Engineering, and Math. We are pleased to begin our 2nd year as a STEM school. Students will begin to develop a clearer understanding of the connection between math and science. Digital technology tools such as Interactive Whiteboards, iPads, and laptops will enhance student learning in almost every subject. On a regular basis, students will engage in hands-on activities that lead to learning by discovery. Many of these hands-on activities will include engineering design challenges.


Engineering Design Process:

· understanding the problem

· brainstorming a solution

· creating a prototype

· testing for the criteria

· evaluating the prototype
