    Vision per STEM Immersion committee (2015): Methacton will provide experiential-based learning and practical applications in a progression of complexity. Using curriculum, instruction, and assessment by infusing core STEM values of problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity/innovation, we will build and sustain partnerships with the community to facilitate student thinking and acting critically in their world.

    Related Strategic Plan Objective, #6: Articulate a district-wide vision of STEM education that demonstrates a commitment to equipping students with skills and tools to effectively communicate, collaborate, and think critically and creatively.

    1. Focus on teaching and learning across all levels, subjects, and disciplines that leverage the 4C’s—collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity.
    2. Encourage teacher STEM certification endorsement at all levels.
    3. Engage teachers in Educator in the Workplace opportunities to inform and provide the application of knowledge and skill.
    4. Develop STEM-related programming and activities that support the progression of knowledge, skill, and engage
