The HOLISTIC STEM SOLUTION consists of 4 STEM MODULES to prepare students better for STEM Careers and College:
ACADEMICS– proven (by State University of New York- SUNY Potsdam evaluation) to advance students one grade level in 25-35 learning hours by using top-rated individualized learning mapped to your state standards, student incentives, teacher stipends, parent incentives, mentoring, teacher professional development, SUNY certificates and credits, and weekly evaluations by SUNY.
|APPLICATION– Using Minecraft/design software, student teams learn coding and apply STEM and 21st century skills (critical thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork, relationship) to design smart house (K-5 grades), smart town (grades 6-8) and smart city (grades 9-12) Winners receive awards at school, district, state and national levels.|
|HANDS-ON: Student teams use robotic programs mapped to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) to prepare for specific STEM careers such as computer science|
|CAREER PATHWAY– Student gets guidance in pursuing specific STEM pathways- what courses to take etc., and jobs available in specific STEM areas within a 50-mile radius.|
