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.We are honored that Liberty Elementary School was selected as FETC STEM Excellence School! The FETC STEM Advisory Board evaluated over a hundred applications for your finalist position and was impressed by the innovation and educational impact of your STEM program! YWe are very proud of this accomplishment and want to share your success with the entire education community.
