The curriculum puts a special focus on problems-based learning so that the students can instantly apply the knowledge they’re gaining.
It is learning that is cross-circular and brings together interactive concepts from multiple disciplines.
It represents the real world where disciplines are not isolated and in fact, is more natural. Integrated STEM has been shown to improve student achievement, and help students to develop more confidence and competence in the process.
Our team of STEM professionals has extensive knowledge of Best practices in STEM at all levels. We know what is out there, what has worked and has not worked. We have not only researched best practice worldwide in curriculum, STEM projects, and after school programs, but we have been hands-on with many of them – including building our own STEM schools from the ground up.
We can customize and work with your school or district to implement a multi-year strategy and road map depending on what level you wish to achieve. We can provide ongoing support to keep you up to date with new programs, and help with tractability to standards.
