What's so great about STEM? Why should my child participate?
STEM provides a unique experience that only Fremont can offer. Students will be packed with a tool belt of knowledge that can be taken past the classroom and apply in real- world scenarios. Students will travel in a cohort and be exposed to a team-building environment where they will encounter problem based learning activities. Students in STEM will also be apart of using some of the latest technology trends in the district and be trained to use programs that few their age have been exposed to. STEM instructors work very closely together to ensure students progress as well as creating an innovative learning environment that goes beyond each content area allowing for deeper connection in their learning experience.
