Why emphasize STEM? “Many employers and public officials have come to believe that all people, particularly young people, need to have some degree of scientific and technological literacy in order to lead productive lives as citizens, whether or not they ever work in a STEM-related field... such literacy is important to being a smart consumer and thoughful participant in democratic decision making and to making sense of the world more generally.” -Source: STEM Integration in K-12, National Academy of Sciences Charger STEM H. Guy Child will continue to provide and advance instruction in essential academic areas including Science, Technology and Math. Students will be introduced to the Engineering design process using Project Lead the Way- Launch curriculum www.pltw.org/our-programs/launch.
