STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) comes to St. Philomene. We are excited about the new curriculum addition. We are grateful for the generous donation from the Dominguez Dream, formerly Vanir Foundation that enables us to build the program. Their partnership enables teachers to attend training seminars, workshops and to purchase program materials. Why STEM? In a technology-based society, technology is ever changing. It's also utilized in every aspect of our lives. STEM knowledge is vital for all students. It allows students to be innovative. STEM helps to transform new ideas into inventions. It fosters creativity and students benefit from creativity! Lastly, STEM encourages students to be critical and analytical thinkers as they prepare to meet the challenges and be successful in the 21st century!
