Welcome to Secondary STEM Education.
Incoming sixth- and seventh-grade students from around the district and beyond have the opportunity to take STEM courses at Robbinsdale Middle School. The program will be open to all three grade levels at Robbinsdale Middle School beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.
The program will be a natural progression for those students at the School of Engineering and Arts at Olson Elementary (SEA), which is a K-5 Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) magnet school and will include, among other things, a year-long course in engineering utilizing the Gateway to Technology (GTT) curriculum, the middle level leg of the national pre-engineering program Project Lead the Way. Plans are being made for more components of the program and also specific professional development for teachers.
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a national Pre-Engineering program for high school students and is available at both Robbinsdale Armstrong and Robbinsdale Cooper.
