ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The STEM academy brings the concept of “Maker Space” into our school. Academy members are involved in challenges to solve problems that extend their modern technology skills. Whether students are master building their own Lego vehicles, designing games or coding and soldering micro-controllers, our aim is to help improve the lives of the people in our street or perhaps those who live on the other side of the planet!
