In 2012 Weatherstone Elementary was designated a member of the WCPSS STEM Network.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Those four components enhance the traditional curriculum offered at Weatherstone. What STEM opportunities are offered at WES?
Students participate in a STEM special every other week at our school. In this special class students are trained in using iPads, exploring different technology resources, and are exposed to the NC STATE Engineering Design Process. On alternating weeks students have the chance to go to our computer lab to work on assignments from the classroom teacher and utilize websites for research projects.
What resources do STEM Schools in WCPSS receive?
STEM Schools receive 30 iPads per grade level and a STEM Facilitator position.
