Exploring the world of STEM
Students will need STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education for future success in school and careers. Our students experience STEM through challenging and fun projects that encourage problem solving, decision making and innovation. They also participate in technology courses, such as typing, podcast and video production, presentation software, Microsoft® Office, introductory video game production, coding and robotics.
During our weekly genius hour, students explore their own interests in our innovation lab and develop a deeper level of critical thinking. This time allows our students to discover interests that they may choose to pursue in their future careers and gives teachers an opportunity to further understand how each student learns.
Our technology-rich environment aids in the development of 21st century skills and also helps us customize each child’s learning. We provide students in fourth and fifth grade with their own iPad® to interactively engage with content and easily access information.
