Rocket power…SOAR! The S.T.E.M. program is flying high and keeping the kids excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! Last week, the students learned about rocket power and created their own rockets to launch. S.T.E.M. continues to focus on a high level of engagement and excitement of our learners with thinking, piloting ideas, and problem solving. Great job students, Mrs. Terrie Haley, and all the S.T.E.M. teachers that continue to help our Eagles soar to new heights!
S.T.E.M., which is short for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Academy, is comprised of teachers in these various fields who lead students to grasp a deeper understanding of these four areas. They hold after school activities every Tuesday and Thursday. These students and teachers have met throughout the school year, participating in several activities from Robotics, to Wind Energy, and have attended special programs related to their specific areas in S.T.E.M. including a special S.T.E.M. fair held at Caroline middle school. Teachers who participate in the program include, Mrs. Rosina Allen, Mr. Stephen Bliley, Ms. Makeda Billingsley, Ms. Shameka Carey, Mrs. Kristy Ellis, Ms. Tiwana Green, Mrs. Debra Pennell, Mrs. Rachel Haley, Mr. Ronald Madras, and Ms. Nicole Dailey.
