STEM Solution

The HOLISTIC STEM SOLUTION consists of 4 STEM MODULES to prepare students better for STEM Careers and College:

ACADEMICS– proven (by State University of New York- SUNY Potsdam evaluation) to advance students one grade level in 25-35 learning hours by using top-rated individualized learning mapped to your state standards, student incentives, teacher stipends, parent incentives, mentoring, teacher professional development, SUNY certificates and credits, and weekly evaluations by SUNY.

RESULTS:

  • Students advanced ONE GRADE LEVEL in Math & ELA in just six months at Somerton SD, AZ (100% F/R meals, 90% bilingual students).
  • Students in Steubenville SD, OH went from the bottom 50% to the top 10% in Ohio state test scores, besides getting very engaged in STEM.
APPLICATION– Using Minecraft/design software, student teams learn coding and apply STEM and 21st century skills (critical thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork, relationship) to design smart house (K-5 grades), smart town (grades 6-8) and smart city (grades 9-12) Winners receive awards at school, district, state and national levels.
HANDS-ON: Student teams use robotic programs mapped to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) to prepare for specific STEM careers such as computer science 
CAREER PATHWAY– Student gets guidance in pursuing specific STEM pathways- what courses to take etc., and jobs available in specific STEM areas within a 50-mile radius.
