STEM Push At Lake Geneva Middle School This Year
6 months ago
Opportunities & Innovation Abound At Lake Geneva Schools!
Lake Geneva Middle School (LGMS) students will benefit from a new STEM program this year. This program is being developed in conjunction with the school district's new strategic plan objective of increasing curricular choices for students at the middle school level.
Students will be be introduced to Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Gateway, a program that provides middle school level engineering, biomedical and computer science curriculum. Students will get rigorous and relevant experiences through activity, project and problem-based learning.
PLTW uses topics like coding and robotics, flight and space, and DNA and crime scene analysis to engage middle school students and their natural curiosity and imagination in creative problem solving.
PLTW Gateway is a strong foundation for further STEM learning in high school and beyond, challenging students to solve real-world challenges,such as cleaning oil spills and designing sustainable housing solutions. Using the same advanced software and tools as those used by the world’s leading companies, students learn how to apply math, science, technology, and engineering to their everyday lives.
The desired result is that these courses at the middle level will make a strong bridge to our already strong and ever-growing PLTW courses at Badger High School.
