STEM to STEAM! Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics are key components of education. Integrating literacy, communication, analytical, technical, and collaborative skills with STEAM will translate to the job market and prepare students for success. Students sitting in classrooms today are the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Let's meet the demands of the 21st Century and prepare the next generation.
Our Mission: Intregrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math throughout the curriculum to prepare students for success in the global community.
Our Vision: STEM education for every student!

News and Events
NGSTP is a professional development opportunity for K-12 teachers which includes the opportunity to gain funding for a classroom project. Selected teachers will participate in an NSTA Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or Three-Dimensional Instruction workshop. They will propose an anchor phenomenon and develop a plan using the Three-Dimensional Model of Instruction, and will receive a budget for supplies to use in the classroom to implement their plan.
To apply for the NGSTP, please complete the 2018-19 application by June 1, 2018. Teachers will be notified by June 15, 2018 of their acceptance to the cohort.

Red Mountain High School Partners with ASU's Department of Psychology
The RISE Initiative (Research Intensive Scientific Experience) "works with high school students to identify their interests, match them with a professor and laboratory in the psychology department, and allow students to perform research. Students complete a senior capstone project, including a presentation of their data, while getting hands-on laboratory experience before starting college.
"In the Bimonte-Nelson lab, the RISE student researchers have many tasks, but the most important ones are to score, process, and analyze behavioral data. These student researchers also learn about the scientific method, about experimental design, and how to use computer programs that support research. In addition, they assist the undergraduate and graduate student researchers with many "wet laboratory" tasks, like mixing liquids and preparing solutions used for biochemistry-involved behavioral experiments."
