STEM and Business
STEM is an acronym that is used to recognize the interdisciplinary nature of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The STEM Departments at Shoreham-Wading River Schools include Science, Technology (including Career & Technical Education subjects: Technology Education, Business and Family & Consumer Sciences) and Mathematics.
Today's student is one that is preparing for a globally changing, advancing world that is more connected than ever before. The lessons they are learning are not only ones that are preparing them for the classroom, but for the workforce and future that awaits them upon graduation. STEM-related professions are one of the most rapidly growing fields in our nation and world - and our teachers are working to make sure that our students are well prepared to be tomorrow's leaders.
The philosophy behind our STEM programs focuses on providing our students with meaningful experiences that allow them to construct their knowledge of their world and use their skills to think critically and solve problems. The skills that they are learning aim to provide them with opportunities to view the interconnected nature of our world and engage in challenges that sharpen those skills. The experiences that students are having in our schools are sure to springboard their successes in any career imaginable and even jobs in fields that have not yet been developed.
Each year, in May we celebrate our successes in STEM with our Annual STEM Symposium.
Please consider joining us for our Fourth Annual STEM Symposium on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 5pm - 8pm in the HS Gymnasium.
