STEM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics as access points for guiding inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experimental learning, persist in problem solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. At CNPS students employ problem solving skills to create, design and make end products in the form of mini projects that pose questions and problems. Students are explicitly taught Art skills during the learning process.
The Key Learning Values are:
- Creating, designing, developing solutions, selecting, building, testing and evaluating coding and programming.
- Brainstorming to find creative alternative solutions.
- Learning to communicate, share ideas and work together.
- Hands-on experience with sensors, motors and intelligent units.
