What is a STEM student?
Students who understand their impact and the impact of others on our world and earth.
A steward of the world around them, and our best hope for the future!
A STEM student is a future agent of change. They know and can explain their impact on the natural world as a member of our school, and the larger community.
Curious! Students who are curious about the world around them, have a drive to find out the what, how and why of the natural world and its systems and the perseverance to stick to all paths of inquiry until that curiosity is  satisfied.
A STEM student is an active participant that solves problems, thinks critically, and collaborates with others.
Knows about how things work in a way that can be related across systems. Enjoys many different things. Critical thinker.  Advocate.
