STEM Education

What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for:

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students at Gearity are engaged in designing solutions to challenges throughout the year. The challenges allow the students to employ problem-solving skills across the curricula in all subject matter.

Teachers use the Common Core state standards and District pacing guides to create units of instruction for students that are both engaging and informative. Students will be asked to design solutions to real-world problems that are relevant to them. This form of instruction is both engaging and exciting for students. They are learning by doing. The solution they design is one tool we use to assess students’ understanding of key concepts.

 

What does STEM education look like?
 
 
Students are:
 

Þ Engaged

Þ Thoughtful

Þ Empathetic

Þ Creative

Þ Collaborative

 

Any student can be a STEM student even if his or her interests are not in the STEM areas of focus. Most of all STEM students are groomed to be successful, risk-takers and independent thinkers. Our goal is to prepare them for the 21st century.
