What is STEM?
King George County elementary STEM education uses an interdisciplinary approach in which academic concepts are linked with real world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and math to make connections between school, community, and work, developing necessary STEM literacy for our economy and world.
Critical thinking, logic, persistence, and creativity help students excel at problem solving in all subject areas, no matter their age. Students will reinforce core content knowledge through projects that integrate and align with grade level Standards of Learning. These experiences will incorporate an engineering design process that assists children in creating, designing, and solving problems with real world connections.
