Moore County Schools Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence leads a discussion about the STEM Infusion learning program that is being taught in the Moore County schools. STEM is the acronym for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATHEMATICS. STEM EDUCATION better prepares students for jobs of the future; many of which have not even been created yet. STEM EDUCATION better prepares students to compete globally in these areas and to foster critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and a more independent mind set.
STEM Master Teacher, Lisa Neal, 4th grade teacher and former STEM student teacher, Amber Hicks, Entrepreneurial Studies Instructor, Lowell Simon & 4th grade student Lizzie Durtschi are panel members who aptly lend credence to the day to day experience that STEM Infusion learning provides and promises for the future of our students. The STEM Summer Camp will be held this July 14-17th at SMS from 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. daily for rising 3rd graders through 8th graders. This is a free program. Information about this program and the STEM Infusion program can be found at the Moore County Schools website, https://www.ncmcs.org.
Lowell Simon speaks about an exciting program he is heading at Union Pines High School; UP Start and why Entrepreneurship in Education is so vital. He speaks about two upcoming programs; Shark Tank Sandhills and Moore Forward Mentoring.
Moore County Schools are on the move & continuing to ‘up their game’ and create the most meaningful learning experience possible for all their students for the 21st century.
