STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

This class takes students through the engineer design process which guides them through the design and implementation of the projects and concepts. The core of this class is for students to learn how to take failure and turn it into motivation to push themselves beyond where they thought they could go. Students use problem-solving and critical thinking skills while they develop competencies in leadership, team building, creativity, and communication. Students will walk away from this class accomplishing things they never thought they were capable of and as well as an invaluable set of life skills. This course may be divided into gender-specific classes at administrative discretion.
