The after-school STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program allows students to participate with interactive projects that move their experience of science beyond the textbook. STEM programs are offered periodically throughout the school year for varying grade levels and interests.
Student groups work cooperatively to plan and design their project and put their ideas into action. With the teachers who supervise the program, the students will experiment (often by trial and error) with different designs. They are encouraged to re-design their projects to make them more effective. At the end of the day, students not only put STEM concepts to practical use, but also learn the value of working together toward a common goal.
