The STEM program for our middle school is currently under construction and will be in place for the 2019-20 school year! We will introduce the concepts of science, technology, engineering, and math through a curriculum that focuses on:
- Food and consumer science projects
- Media formats such as movie apps, green screen, and animation
- Coding and robotics programs that build upon skill sets introduced at the elementary level
- Digital citizenship will be reinforced as a foundation for communication with staff and the greater community
Beyond the support of our school families, our STEM Lab would not be possible without the professional development, support and grant funding of Catholic Schools Center of Excellence (CSCOE) and Minnesota Independent School Forum (MISF), Engineering Is Elementary (eie.org), Code.org professional development, donations from Hess Corporation, and STEM-focused programs developed by St. Thomas University. We are grateful for our partnerships with these organizations as they allow our students to expand their way of thinking allowing them to do great things!
