About the STEM Program

STEM shifts Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics learning away from the traditional teacher-centered model and instead synthesizes these four disciplines around problem-solving, discovery, and exploratory learning. Students develop deeper understandings by engaging in a situation in order to find a solution.  
Our after-school STEM offerings provide students in Grade 3 through Grade 8 additional opportunities for STEM exploration outside of the regular math and science classrooms. Topics include coding, preparation for math competitions, robotics, engineering, and more.

List of 4 items.

  • MONDAYS: Audio Engineering

    Grade 5–8
    In this class, students will learn the basics of Garage Band and have fun recording various skits, songs, conversations, interviews, and more.
  • TUESDAYS: Engineering—Submarines

    Grades 5–8
    If what goes up must come down, then is it also true that what goes down must come up? We'll find out by building "submarines" that use principles of buoyancy to float and sink on their own in a tank of water.

    Grades 5–8
    With the great outdoors as our science lab, students will step outside to explore the Ensworth ecosystem and learn about our role in it.
  • THURSDAYS: Math Club

    Grades 5–8
    Students will focus on problem-solving skills such as noticing patterns and solving puzzles in a fun and collaborative environment.
