We have started this blog as a gathering place for information regarding STEM at Calrossy: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Our aim is to help the community get familiar with the concept of STEM and how it can enhance learning!
Quality STEM projects can…
- Instill resourcefulness
- Develop creativity
- Promote problem solving
- Engage students
