PREPARING ACTIVE LEARNERS
STEM is the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics integrated into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. Teachers are increasingly instructing this interdisciplinary approach as it relates to students’ future success in college, careers and life. This engagement of the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity) also provides students with the ability to compete in a new global economy with a workforce population rich in STEM skills and opportunities.
We provide instruction to generate student interest, increase STEM literacy, and provide opportunities for students to think critically in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. When you walk into a classroom during a STEM lesson, you see students creating, problem solving, asking and answering questions, discovering, making mistakes, and learning from those mistakes. All four fields are integrated into student-centered learning activities because this provides an authentic learning experience that parallels the work force, where these fields are naturally integrated.
