Description: STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Students will be introduced to problems that need to be solved through developing ideas in these areas. This will require the students to apply ideas from Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math that will lead to a deeper understanding of concepts. This class will encourage experimentation, creativity, ingenuity, problem solving, teamwork, reliasanace, and application. Education in the past relied on rote memorization of facts. This class is about learning and using what you know in real world applications.
