We are proud to offer

STEM

STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We focus on these subjects to help our children gain the skills needed to succeed in today’s challenging world. This includes the ability to think critically, solve complex problems and drive advancements in science and technology.

Students in Pre-Kindergarten-8th grade participate in STEM classes once or twice a week for 40 minutes… and they love it! Whether it’s creating a model with our 3D printer or programming robots to do logical tasks, our children are always excited for class!

 

Take a look at what we're working on!

PreKindergarten

Inclined planes

Our Pre-Kindergarten class explored inclined planes! We discovered how to make our cars go FAST down the plane and how to make them go SLOW! Then we worked in small groups to build and play with our own!

SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADE

ENGINEERING BRIDGES

Lesson focused on how bridges are engineered to withstand weight, while being durable, and in some cases aesthetically pleasing. Students worked in teams to design and build their own bridge out of up to 200 popsicle sticks and glue. Bridges had to have a span of at least 14 inches and be able to hold at least 10 pounds. Students were encouraged to be frugal and use the fewest number of popsicle sticks while still achieving their goals. Students then evaluated the effectiveness of their own bridge designs and those of other teams.

HOUR OF CODE

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to simplify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. St. Anthony students from KINDERGARTEN through 8th grade participated this year!!! It is amazing to see how well these young people understand the basics of computer science!
