Through interactive, project-based activities, students develop the problem-solving skills and critical thinking necessary for a lifetime of learning. There’s traditional math and science, of course, and students are also exposed to hands-on STEM experiences, including:
- Digital literacy
- Lego® robotics
- Designing, building, and racing model cars and boats
- 3D rendering
For older students, STEM programming includes financial literacy through the practical mathematics of calculating college costs and forecasting earning potential and expenses. It’s no wonder Horizons graduates say their exposure to STEM and other project-based activities has increased their interest in math and science and helped define their career choices.
