Teachers at Central Middle School are currently working towards District Level STEM Certification. Why STEM certification? STEM is the idea of educating students in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates content material into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real world applications. At Central Middle School, we are using STEM to promote a culture of creative thinking.
Through our connections classes, CMS students have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive STEM lab. Last year our students participated in the 2nd system wide Technology Fair with many of those students moving forward to compete at the district level. Additionally, our STEM Connections Teacher, Brittany Maddox, along with several students volunteered to help our community STEM Day at the Amp by setting up a booth and working with students throughout that day.(Below are pictures from STEM Day at the Amp and the District Technology Fair.)
