STEM Overview

  •  S.T.E.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We at PCSECHS believe that these fields of study today will be the focus of new jobs and growth for tomorrow. We have decided as a school to develop opportunities in these areas for our students to explore and learn.  Here is what is available at our school so far:

    • Design Thinking is a foundational STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) course intended to encourage students to think critically through project-based learning. We will be investigating areas such as programming, electronics, 3D modeling and printing, drone technology, and robotics.  The Engineering Design Process will be used throughout all projects this semester in order to provide a framework for students’ creativity.
