STEaM

(Science ~Technology ~Engineering~ Arts~ Mathematics)

…is designed to transform the teaching of multiple compartmentalized subject areas into a “meta-discipline.”

Northport’s goal with STEaM is to establish a well-balanced education  by transforming a teacher-centered classroom curriculum into a problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning environment, which encourages students to actively engage in situations that require finding solutions.  It stimulates the ability to think critically, work independently and as a member of a team.

This cross-curriculum program provides a creative and innovative way to apply what has been learned. by promoting independent innovation and encourage students to explore greater depths of all skills learned in the traditional classroom setting.

In order to accomplish such goals we have customized our curriculum by adding programs that engage and meet the needs of our students, we maximized the use of local resources and established partnerships with numerous local and national orgnizations.
