• Students in Grades K-5 will participate in a STEAM class (Science, Technology Engineering, Art and Math) during their specials rotation. Each week, students will have a hands-on opportunity to engage in problem-based learning that includes developing an engineering mindset and approach to problem solving. Students in Grades 3-5 will also be working within a computer science program.

    STEM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)  is a rotation in the middle school's Encore program. The goal of STEM Lab is to foster a learning environment in which students are guided to produce original ideas, objects, and structures according to certain specifications using concepts and skills from math, science, and technology. STEM Lab is meant to empower students with the tools, resources, and freedom necessary to grow their capacity for creativity and their critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. Each grade level has a unique theme and mini-units: 

    • Sixth Grade: STEM Overview and Gaming
