All students from K-8th have one 45 minute class in our STEM lab every week. The purpose of
our program is to focus on technology and engineering components of STEM and to improve
students’ math and reasoning skills using interactive computer games. The students learn how
to program their own games, create their own characters, and write stories using Scratch.
Scratch is a programming language developed by MIT for students 8 to 16 years old.
Fourth thru eighth grade students also learn how to use Tinkercad to create and design 3D
models. They can watch their designs come to life on our 3D printer. Middle school students
have access to our Vex IQ robots. They can design, create, and control their robots in our
STEM lab and have the opportunity to compete in regional and state competitions. Our STEM
lab continues after school on Tuesday and Thursday for students that want to improve their
robotic skills and tinker with Raspberry pi’s.
