STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is an approach to teaching in which students become innovators, solving real world problems through design. As students work to create solutions, they gain skills and knowledge in all academic disciplines, and also learn effective collaboration and critical thinking skills.
Careers for women in these fields are available. Visitation Academy is committed to preparing our girls for paths that lead to success, independence, and self-confidence – now and in their future.
The Visitation Academy Lower School and Middle School participate in an annual STEM Expo in which students share their collaborative class projects. All projects provide students with the opportunity to understand and apply the Scientific Method, to ask and answer questions, and to explore practical solutions to local and global problems through science and other disciplines.
