At STEMNASIUM LEARNING Academy, we focus on educating the next generation of students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Here are some of the frequently asked questions to help you gain a better understanding of our STEM education program.
STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Since 2001, STEM has become a common part of educational vocabulary.
All students benefit from the STEM program because it teaches 21st century skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration and teamwork. The program allows students to explore greater depths of STEM and to implement the skills they learn. It is critically important to start developing STEM skills at a young age to empower today’s students to be tomorrow’s global leaders.
All classes are taught by instructors professionally trained in one or more of the STEM disciplines. Instructors have worked and/or taught in their STEM field. Each class also has at least two assistants to help facilitate instruction and support all students to ensure they rise to expectations.
STEMNASIUM LEARNING Academy has an integrated curriculum that touches on a variety of subjects. Because of the intensity of our instruction, students will be challenged to excel in each one of these subjects. The program also promotes mastery in core subjects such as reading, math, and science.
STEMNASIUM LEARNING Academy prides itself on developing the total child. In order to enroll, all students must be at least of kindergarten age.
A day in the life of STEMNASIUM Learning Academy looks like a hive of activity. We take a team-based and hands-on approach to learning. During class, you will see small teams of students collaborating with each other to address each challenge we offer to them. Students will be gaining skills both in STEM and in teamwork by pursuing ambitious project goals and working together to achieve them.
Our goal is to improve students’ capability in the core science and math curriculums. We have an ecosystem of subject matter experts in math and science that will help facilitate student achievement. Furthermore, by demonstrating to students the relevance of math and science and the value of hard work, we inspire them to set high goals and achieve them.
