Saint Columbkille STEM Academy
At Saint Columbkille Partnership School’s Summer STEM Academy, students will deepen their understanding of STEM concepts through hands-on lab, fieldwork, and engagement in the engineering design process. The academy curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Each week will end with a capstone field trip, which may include the Boston Harbor Islands, BC’s Weston Observatory, and local corporate and university biotech and engineering labs.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is important because it pervades every aspect of our lives. High quality STEM experiences develop critical thinking skills, increase science literacy, and enable the next generation of innovators. STEM education not only equips students with the tools they need to succeed in a highly technological future, but also provides exciting experiences they will remember for many years to come.
A six week summer program focused on real-world, hands-on learning for students entering grades 5 – 7 takes place at Saint Columbkille Partnership School. The program runs from Monday – Friday from 8AM to 4PM (extended day option until 5:30PM). The session fee is $300 (add $15/day for extended day). Financial assistance is available due to the generosity of the Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger and Charlesview Charitable Fund. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request financial assistance. Registration deadline is April 14, 2018.
