STEM AP Friday Program

STEM AP stands for 

Science: The study of the natural world. 
T Technology: One surprise - the STEM definition for technology includes any product made by humans to meet a want or a need. Any product kids create to solve a problem can be regarded as technology.
E Engineering: The design process kids use to solve problems.
M Math: The language of numbers, shapes, and quantities that seems so irrelevant to many students. 
   
A Arts: Integration of the arts in technology.
P Physical Education: Being active and teaching health and nutrition.

STEM AP is more than just a grouping of subject areas. It is a movement to develop the deep mathematical and scientific needs to be competitive in the 21st century workforce. STEM AP develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigation, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. STEM AP isn't a stand-alone class. It’s a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum.
