STEM is an acronym for “Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.” A lesson or unit in a STEM class is typically based around finding a solution to real-world problems and tends to emphasize project-based learning. Students will use different materials and computer-assisted designs in attempt to conduct experiments, build models, simulate situations, and complete their projects. The experiments and projects model how real-world engineers and scientists try to improve today’s world. Students will be introduced to skills that are necessary for STEM-related careers that include pharmacy, programming, engineering fields, physician assistants, network communications, finance, risk analysis, athletic training, and even teaching!
STEM Team Students have the opportunity to compete against other schools at a chance for state recognition.
