STEM@AISU

Design Thinking, Robotics and Computer Science

STEM@AISU seeks to empower students with the innovation, communication and critical thinking skills necessary to address 21st century problems.

Students can get involved in STEM@AISU programs through elective courses, intensives and afterschool programs.  These programs focus on three core disciplines Robotics, Computer Science and Design Thinking.

In creating these programs we hope to foster students interest and intrinsic motivation to pursue paths in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields.

FAQs

What is STEM@AISU?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and is term used to describe programs which encourage students to explore careers in these fields. Specifically STEM@AISU seeks to empower students with the innovation, communication and critical thinking skills necessary to become agents of change prepared to address 21st century problems.

When does STEM@AISU meet?

STEM@AISU is not one specific program, but rather a group of after school, elective and intensive programs which allow students to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

I have a new idea for an afterschool club!

Fantastic! We would love to hear about it and will do our best to help you implement it at the school. Propose your idea to the STEM Director or a Math or Science teacher and we’ll help to get it off the ground.

What age groups can get involved with STEM@AISU?

Right now our intensives and afterschool programs are offered to student in grades 6-12. Our community wide STEM Expos are open to all ages and we hope to develop elementary programs in the future.

Can parents get involved?

YES! We are always looking for parent volunteers to help support our large community wide events. Additionally, we are always looking for experts within our school community who would like to share their expertise with students through workshops or guest lectures.
