  • STEM 8

The Notre Dame STEM 8 program is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach wherever possible. STEM creates an environment where we will apply scientific concepts to real-world problems with the tools of mathematics, technology, and engineering design.

In alignment with the BC curriculum, we develop skills and attitudes according to the curricular competencies in Math and Science, as well as engage in developing core competencies, including communication, creative/critical thinking, and personal/social skills.

Highlights include exploring the Kinetic Molecular Theory with dry ice, measuring the mitochondria, (powerhouse of the cell) via chemistry, as well as engineering bridges and hydraulic machines!
