West Bloomfield School District is pleased to announce the continuation of its STEAM learning experiences kindergarten through 12th grade. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. STEAM programs employ a Project Based Learning approach, a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. STEAM uses critical thinking skills and incorporates the arts into this framework by recognizing that in order to be successful in technical fields, students must also be creative.
STEAM openings are available for students in grades K-12 for:
*Students currently enrolled in the West Bloomfield School District *District Resident Students not currently attending a West Bloomfield School District School *Schools of Choice
All applicants must meet program criteria and selections will be made by lottery. A limited number of openings are available.
Applicants will be selected based on a review of the following criteria:
*Most Recent Report Card (Transcript needed for High School) *Attendance Record *Writing Sample *Student Self-Assessment
Applications are accepted online between February 1 - March 1, 2017.
