STEM

As the STEM employment sector continues to grow, we need the next generation to fill these jobs. Computer programmers, science teachers, bio-medical technicians, architects, engineers of all sorts, and other STEM related professionals are increasingly in demand to meet the needs of our community's economy.  Starting now, our students will be asked to solve local, national and global challenges in areas including energy, health, environment and national security.  Through classroom STEM experiences, our students are learning in-demand, transportable skills such as problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking, and how to communicate and collaborate. We are working hard to prepare our students for the future through real-world challenges.
STEM Industry Partners

Our school district is seeking partnerships with local businesses to provide real-world experiences for our students.  With a strong partnership, we hope to reach beyond the bounds of our school and into the workforce. Some of the ways we envision using our STEM partners are as follows:

  • Industry Chats for K-8 classrooms to join in through virtual conferencing
  • Personal industry contacts provide relevant information that we can connect with our classroom instruction
  • Career exploration provides detailed, job-specific information that teaches students about the relevancy of concepts learned in class.
  • Student field trips or virtual tours of local businesses in our community
  • Mentors and role models for our students
  • Connections to career options
  • Support classes with advice on how to use specific equipment
  • Provide additional resources to students and teachers
  • Lead students through a relevant project in your job - show the process taken
  • Evaluate student projects and give feedback
