Lower School (Grades K-5)

Overview

Young children are natural scientists, engineers and problem-solvers as they explore the world by touching, tasting, building, dismantling and discovering. STEM³ Academy elementary school years are a time for exploration and engagement, cultivating a love of learning and satisfying the child’s boundless curiosity and need to find out how things work. Our dedicated instructors are working every day to create exciting new ways to integrate innovation and building into our curriculum. In the lower grades, the Innovation Lab focuses on basic skills of building and making. As students progress to the middle grades, projects become increasingly more complex until the high school level, where students work with sophisticated technology including a CNC machine, 3-D printers, CAD, Autodesk, power tools, and other resources for making and building.
