STEM is an enrichment class for motivated students that excel and are interested in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This program gives these students an opportunity to apply the principles learned in math and science classes to real world applications and the kinds of careers that use them.
In STEM, students are presented with real-world problem solving challenges and develop, create, and test a solution for the challenge.
Additionally, students learn some amazing skills and use the latest technology to see their solutions realized.
STEWARTS CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL
We just finished the first half of our fall semester STEM classes. Our 6th grade Explorers dove into using the engineering design process, was introduced to CAD, and learned the best practices of designing and innovating. Our 7th grade Innovators took their design skills to the next level designing moustrap car racers and marble launchers and are now designing video games. While, our 8th grade Designers just started designing zoo enclosures. It's going to be another great quarter!

The core obective of SCM STEM is to equip students in four fundamental areas:
1.) Master using the Engineering Design Process to create & improve solutions.
2.)Integrate science and math principles in real-world scenarios.
3.)Cultivate a culture of creative thinking.
Provide risk-free and mistake-making opportunities.
4.)Emphasize teamwork and collaborative skills.
5.)Incorporate the use of current essential skills and technologies.
One of the perks of being a part of SCM STEM is the opportunity to join the SC Robotics team.
The Stewarts Creek Robotics Team is comprised completely of SCM STEM students and competes against other middle schools as well as high schools. In the fall, our team competes in the Music City BEST Robotics challenge hosted at Lipscomb University. In this student-led competition, students design and build a robot to solve a different problem each year.
Additionally, the SC Robotics team has competed in MATE, an underwater robotics challenge, and Robot Done League where we've taken our robot to the air.
