STEM Program

STEM is an acronym for science, technology engineering and math, but is actually a way of teaching and learning. Using engineering design, teachers can help students make connection between the disciplines as they gain necessary 21st century skills. Through STEM, SCCSD is preparing our students for their future. #FutureReady
