Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

Loveland High School student works on an intricate robotics project.

STEM education is an integrated approach to teaching and learning. Problem-based experiences occur both in and out of the classroom so that students develop the basic skills and attitudes necessary to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the solution of real-world problems.

STEM schools use science, technology, engineering, and math to bring relevance to student work and make connections to society and the global world we live in. STEM classrooms are student-centered environments rich in questioning and inquiry where students have frequent opportunities to apply engineering design and problem-solving processes to authentic, contextual problems. STEM schools are designed to be responsive and intentional to meet student needs and support the instructional model. The classrooms are flexible in design and promote innovative learning theory for all learners.
