What is STEM?
STEM is an acronym that stands for Science,Technology, Engineering and Math.

STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. A STEM-focused learning opportunity is one where students study real-life problems and try to find solutions. It is possible, of course, to teach and learn about each of the four STEM disciplines in isolation, but the real world does not present these problems separately. The real world presents a conglomeration of disciplines all mixed together. The 21st Century approach to solving real-world problems is a collaborative approach. STEM-based education can begin at any age and can happen anywhere including home, school and the community.

At Precious Blood we are implementing the above collaborative approach to STEM throughout our curriculum. For example in Grade 6 Science, there is a strand on Electricity, which has a robotics connection. Another example is Math where students can collaborate and solve a real-life problem such as producing a video to peer teach other students.
