K-12 STEM opportunities
Pine Lake Preparatory students are exposed to STEM education beginning in their Lower School years, and opportunities are expanded throughout their years at PLP.
Students Kindergarten through Grade 5 come to the STEM Building every two weeks for a 90 minute hands-on lesson on pulleys and other simple machines, and simple programming of Ozobots.
In Middle School, students can opt into STEM classes for half the year, and learn about Design and Modeling, Automation and Robotics, Flight and Space, and Medical Detectives.
Upper School students have the opportunity to choose one, or both, STEM tracks currently offered; Engineering, and Computer Science.
The state of the art STEM Building opened opportunities for Science and Engineering teachers to bring their lessons into the wide hallways to test their parachutes, gliders, assembly lines and other hand-on creations.
