STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and math)
North Country School's STEM program helps students become inventive thinkers and creative problem solvers. At its core, our STEM curriculum asks students to define problems, develop solutions, build prototypes, and present their work. STEM instills strong math and science skillsets that help students tackle real-world problems. In our STEM projects, students' input and effort is valued, and they engage in a collaborative engineering process that incorporates what we call the four Cs of project-based learning.
- Creativity leads to trying new approaches, innovating, and inventing
- Critical thinking leads to analysis, assessment, and problem solving
- Collaboration means students work together to achieve common goals
- Communication means students articulate their own, and listen to others’, processes and outcomes
