Rogers Ranch School – STEM

STEM education focuses on academic programs that combine science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in meaningful, hands-on, inquiry-based learning environments. Rogers Ranch students are immersed in learning activities that incorporate these concepts as they foster 21st Century skills, such as critical thinking, information literacy, and collaboration and investigate solutions to real-world problems.

STEM topics are integrated into all subject areas including social studies, art, music, and physical education. While Rogers Ranch is STEM– focused, students will continue to develop literacy skills, frequently writing and utilizing informational text related to STEM topics.

Rogers Ranch School’s facilities feature a 1:1 student to computing device ratio and a fully equipped Paxton-Patterson Action Lab. Here, students rotate through different modules of STEM activities such as aerodynamics, clean energy mechanisms, and forensics. Lessons are computer-based, hands-on, open-ended, and focus on problem solving.
