St. Therese School Holds Science STEM Summer Camp
Succasunna, NJ- Students from St. Therese School participated in the second annual Science STEM Summer Camp during the week of June 30. Third through fifth graders enjoyed jam-packed days of STEM activities including rocket launches, making slushies, slime and manufactured “snow.” St. Therese School will join the diocesan STEM program this coming year to enhance their newly-developed diocesan Math, Language Arts and Reading curriculum which was designed in conjunction with ACE Collaborative through Notre Dame University.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The skills and knowledge in these disciplines are not only essential for student success, but are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively. STEM is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with hands-on, problem-based learning. In addition, to the STEM-based program, St. Therese School students in pre-K through 8th grade benefit from an enriching and caring environment where values become an integral part of every day life and they are encouraged to develop as individuals and to fulfill their intellectual and spiritual potential.
There are limited openings for the 2014-2015 school year. For more information or a tour of the school, contact principal, Mrs. Lisa Hirschfeld, at973-584-0812 or visit our website at http://sts.stthereseroxbury.org.
