A “STEM School” can mean several things. The letters in STEM stand for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Vanderlyn Elementary's STEM initiative means an approach to education in which:
Technological Literacy as defined by nationally recognized standards is a goal for all students.
Hands-on experience with practical applications of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering design is used to establish the real-world relevance and inter-relationships of all curriculum subjects.
