STEM DESIGN & DISCOVERY provides our 9th graders with a foundation and companion to each STEM class. Our program is looking to develop innovation while building 21st century skills within each student. There is a critical role for creative thinking and design in today’s job market, so students will learn how to ask authentic questions and develop skills needed to create their ideas and designs. Students will be using the CCHS STEM Design Cycle to develop advanced thinking and problem solving skills. Critical thinking, communication, and collaboration will be essential components of the class throughout the year.
