Here at MCSA, STEM education takes its form in a variety of ways. When it comes down to doing activities, we highly encourage experimentation because it gets our students thinking creatively as they tackle their schoolwork. It teaches them about trial and error, to use their creativity, and that making mistakes is not an obstacle, but a part of the learning process.
It also teaches students to work together when reaching a common goal. Whether it is preparing for a class presentation, doing a science experiment, or completing any assignment, collaboration benefits our students as they thrive in their academic paths.
Additionally, it helps students use their critical thinking skills when problem solving. It allows for a student to observe a problem or concept, examine it, and then create a respective solution.
At MCSA, STEM education has impacted our students in many ways and has paved the way that leads to their bright futures. Whether they pursue careers in STEM or not, we have taught them important life skills that they will come to use every day in communities that appreciate and need their leadership.
