Students experience STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education through projects that combine scientific and mathematical analysis with the design process of technology and engineering.
Challenging and fun projects encourage collaboration, problem-solving, decision making, creativity and innovation. Students work together to solve real problems, while developing a love of math and science.
Our STEM projects were developed by the Boston Museum of Science. Examples include:
- Kindergarten windmill design uses knowledge of wind energy and mechanical engineering skills to design items such as sails for small boats or windmill blades.
- Second grade agricultural engineering uses knowledge of insects, life cycles and pollination, to design hand pollinators for different flowers.
- Upper grade environmental engineering develops solutions to environmental problems, such as designing a process for cleaning an oil spill.
