STEM & Gifted Education

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes are an interdisciplinary approach to learning which removes the traditional barriers separating the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math and integrates them into real world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for students. 
 
Students’ natural interests in science and engineering blossom through both real-world engineering design problems and hands-on inquiry. The activities and assessments promote higher-order, critical thinking skills that will result in improved student performance.

K-2nd grade
Stimulate our youngest students’ thinking as we integrate STEM experiences into their academics. These engaging, developmentally appropriate activities maximize children’s learning of the STEM disciplines.
