The Holliday Heine 学习蒸汽 Program
At Roland Park Country School, 蒸汽, which stands for science, 技术, 工程, 艺术与数学, is purposefully integrated into our school curriculum from grades K through 8 to expose our students to all of these concepts in a coordinated and meaningful way, while the focus shifts in 中学 to a more STEM-centric curriculum.
STEM and 蒸汽 are overarching programs that connect each of these areas into a cohesive learning plan. This interdisciplinary approach is intended to give our students the confidence, knowledge and tools to build a solid foundation and deep understanding of real-world applications if they decide to pursue STEM/蒸汽 focused careers.
The principles of a STEM/蒸汽 education help students enthusiastically learn and find exploratory solutions in a hands-on way, instead of memorizing facts and figures or being lectured to in class. 例如, students who are studying architecture and art can apply concepts learned from science and math classes to mix and test the strength of the concrete they use before building a structure. Or students could learn more about biology by studying artwork of microscopic cells on slides. The STEM/蒸汽 program also gives students the opportunity to collaborate. When grouped into teams, our students are able to showcase and contribute their personal strengths to work together on a large project.
We encourage our students’ curiosity and work together across departments to make sure our STEM/蒸汽 curricula are comprehensive, imaginative and fun! 了解更多 our 创新的空间, where students in every grade can investigate new ideas, explore their interests and build upon their STEM/蒸汽 education.
In the 上学校, the STEM Institute offers semester-long research apprenticeships for students of all levels of interest and ability. 了解更多 The Holliday Heine STEM Institute program.
