Fall 2019 Saturday STEM Academy Registration For 7th & 8th Graders

The Saturday STEM Academy provides 7th and 8th grade students the opportunity to further develop their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in an unparalleled, educationally stimulating series of course offerings. The Fall sessions theme will focus on 'simple machines', coding and Biomedical/Anthropology. Our projects and activities will explore simple machines and how there are multiple solutions to every problem. Students will learn to code via object oriented programming and our Biomedical/Anthropology students will analyze and study the evolution of humans and how they utilized simple machines in their everyday lives. The Saturday STEM Program provides students with project-based activities that reinforce discovery, critical thinking, creativity, innovation and collaboration. The courses are offered at the Diana C. Lobosco STEM Academy which is located on the Passaic County Technical-Vocational Schools campus.
