The world is changing at a breakneck pace. We're preparing our students for jobs that don't even exist yet. In this rapidly evolving world, it is vital that we equip our students with the skills they will need to thrive, such as critical thinking, communication, creativity and collaboration. Integrating STEM through hands-on learning in our classrooms will help to develop these skills in our students. We'll look at examples of how project-based learning and the Maker Movement have transformed learning at Stewart Middle Magnet.
