STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This course is designed for students who want to improve their English language skills in order to impact future scientific and technological growth. SBC Canford's STEM program teaches students how to use each of these four academic disciplines to address real-world scientific and technical problems, such as in robotics, engineering, and technological design.
Students will develop educated perspectives and attitudes about how each field contributes to the biological, technological, and physical world as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are linked together in the course syllabus. Students will study about the interdependence of each profession and how the four disciplines interact to influence society. Students improve their language abilities and knowledge through working, negotiating, and planning in English as well as studying and applying subject-specific language during this course.
Students will work in groups to study, assess, plan, and produce a scientific or technological concept or thesis for each STEM project. Students will be required to prepare a presentation and demonstration of their scientific results and technological design at the end of each project. This course will not only improve our students' knowledge of STEM disciplines, but also their English language skills, by requiring them to participate in research and development assignments that conclude in presentations.
STEM is taught at SBC Canford through hands-on project work that students complete in groups with their classmates. Students will not only increase their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics via interactive project work, but also their ability to communicate, collaborate, solve issues, and take initiative as part of a team.
