Welcome to the Parish Episcopal School's STEM classes website!

This site is the home for all of Middle and Upper School STEM electives.

Program Purpose:

The goal of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) courses is to encourage students' innovative and critical thinking skills utilizing fun hands on challenges, simulations, and projects. Through both independent and group oriented tasks students will develop project management skills and familiarity with the engineering design process. The hope is for students to improve their collaborative skills, mature as creative problem solvers, and appreciate STEM as a fun, exciting, and evolving field with numerous career possibilities and applications.

*All students are expected to uphold the honor code and technology acceptable use policies of Parish Episcopal School and their respective divisions.
