What is S.T.E.M.?

STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues. In STEM education, teachers function as classroom facilitators. They guide students through the problem-solving process and plan projects that lead to mastery of content and STEM proficiency. STEM proficient students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content in a seamless fashion. STEM proficient students are logical thinkers, effective communicators and are technologically, scientifically, and mathematically literate.

Mason Creek Elementary Campus STEM Vision

The STEM student effectively collaborates and communicates ideas and solutions with peers using critical thinking, creativity, and logical reasoning. The STEM student constructs innovative ideas, plans investigations, and analyzes data using scientific and math principles to find solutions in authentic learning experiences. At the end of the STEM journey, the MAES student analyzes real world problems, engages in critical thinking skills and applies them with confidence. 

 

Campus STEM Goals:

1. Teachers will integrate subjects and incorporate engineering practices across the curriculum by completing at least one engineering or project based activity by May 2019.

2. Teachers will embed technology such as Google classroom, Active Expressions, and other technology based programs weekly in the classroom as measured by lesson plans through May 2019.

3. Teachers will encourage student collaboration with frequent opportunities for hands-on problem-based learning as measured by lesson plans and observations by May 2019.
