STEM education is an acronym for the fields of study that refers to teaching and learning in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Robotics Classes and Team Competition
Fifteen year old students in the United States are ranked 25th in the world in science and math. For this reason, many schools across the nation have made a commitment to STEM education. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We must raise the bar in education and rethink the design of school if we want excellent math and science learning for all of our students. At Turlock Christian School, we have introduced a Robotics program to inspire students to pursue their interests in STEM. Robotics is a fun, motivating, and challenging learning experience that is able to bring all these disciplines together.
Students will learn to assemble and program robots to perform specific tasks. In the process they are also introduced to "C" programming language. We plan to participate in local and national competitions. However, our primary goal is to help our students become leaders in the community, inspire others to pursue STEM, and move forward in their chosen field of study.
Thanks to large donations, we are currently working with a group of high school students to develop their skills in building and programming using . Our students will visit one of the local robotic events this year and begin preparation for entering robotics competition in 2017. We are inviting interested parents, mentors, and companies to invest in our students’ futures and partner with us to fulfill our vision for STEM education.
AP Classes in STEM
