STEM is an enhancement that most colleges, many high schools and a few elementary schools are moving onto, and it’s arrived at Mt. Carmel School!
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math = STEM... at OLMC we added an S at the end for SERVICE. The Service component is the most important piece of the enhancement. We have adopted the slogan, "Preparing Our Students For a Global Community" as an inspirational mandate to help others.
Innovation, curiosity and imagination are at the heart of STEMS. Our approach will start off with an orientation during the Fall semester. This includes teacher training and participation by students in exercises that will be of interest and curiosity.
Sister Christi Ferrera and Mrs. Emma Fico held a three day workshop with 8th graders during which they did exercises in creative thinking, collaboration and finally, built robots.
There will be a Parent meeting on Wednesday night, during which the students will explain and demonstrate their robots.
Our facebook page contains several photos of the children involved with our "test run."
