SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATHEMATICS INITIATIVE


STEM diagram

 

STEM develops the deep mathematical and scientific underpinnings students need to be competitive in the 21st-century workforce.

 STEM goes beyond preparing students for specific jobs. STEM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. STEM isn’t a standalone class—it’s a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum.

 STEM acronym:

Science: The study of the natural world.
Technology: Includes any product made by humans to meet a want or need.
Engineering: The design process students use to solve problems.
Math: The language of numbers, shapes, and quantities.

Currently we have nine schools in the School District that are STEM Certified through AdvancED and there are several more schools starting the process.
