This year at Durant, we have added STEM as a specials class. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Students will use the MakerSpace lab the majority of time for STEM learning. Students will be engaged in hand on activities that are creative, collaborative, require students to be critical thinkers and communicate effectively.
By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, we believe they will develop a passion for it and possibly pursue a job in a STEM field. A curriculum that is STEM-based has real-life situations to help the student learn. STEM activities provide hands-on and minds-on lessons for the student. Making math and science both fun and interesting helps the student to do much more than just learn.
