STEM at St. Philip the Apostle
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
STEM is integrated in several ways into the curriculum at St. Philip the Apostle. Primary and intermediate students have experience with STEM in Learning Centers and in their own classrooms. Junior high students participate in STEM in Math, Science and Technology classes.
Some of the STEM projects our students have done include:
Leprechaun Traps Paper Boat Engineering
MARS Rovers Computer Coding
Biome Diorama and Creative Writing Google Classroom Investigations
Instrument Creation Spaghetti Towers
Save Fred project Webquests
