The K-8 STEM Academy (which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) will open in the fall of 2014 and focuses on a tech-savvy and project-based approached to learning. What does project-based learning mean? In the real-world, collaboration is required to “get the job done.” Instead of traditional classrooms, the STEM Academy will have “houses” and subgroups of students that facilitate small group discussion and instruction. The STEM learning spaces will be created to foster collaboration and cultivate social skills that are necessary to succeed in the real world.
