Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM)
From rocket launches to printing with our new 3D printer, every day brings new STEM explorations for our students! Check out the articles below to find information on how to manage screen time and technology at home. (For more at-home activities, see our parent resource page.)
Take a look at some pictures and video of our latest STEM lessons!
We Have Liftoff on Our First Rocket Launch
Thank you USNA midshipmen for teaching us about aerodynamics, wind propulsion, and rocketry! We loved making our own 3D printed rockets!
Students are getting their first introduction to robotics with our new Bee Bots!
From Legos and wood blocks to more complex structures, our kids start learning the basics of engineering early.
Check out the first creation of our 3D printer! We also used our printer to create rockets for our rocket launch with USNA midshipmen.
We spend a lot of time learning as much about the world as we can--check out our sunflower and pumpkin explorations, our lesson about how oysters clean the water, and the turtles, fire belly toads, and horseshoe crabs we've been raising!

In a technology-driven world, early computer literacy is an important skill. We incorporate the use of computers and tablets into our curriculum.
