London Advances STEM Offerings for Students

Looking for ways to fully engage students in problem-based learning across the curriculum, LCS has launched a STEM initiative, which focuses on adding additional elementary, middle, and high school courses and providing innovative spaces in each school in order to foster more student creativity.

 

In addition to the school’s original STEM pathway, Agricultural Education, London High School will launch introductory courses in Computer Science and Biomedical Science beginning next school year. Courses will be added each year until a complete four course pathway is in place. Each pathway will allow students not only to fully explore each subject area but also to apply advanced problem-solving skills as part of an internship and/or capstone project. In addition, London Middle School will launch exploratory mini courses in Implement Design & Modeling, Automation & Robotics, and App Creator. Finally, the fifth grade team at London Elementary School will provide a base for problem-based learning by focusing on teaching early knowledge of the design process.

 

The district also plans to upgrade current media centers to support students, so they may create, learn, and apply the design process or complete problem-based lessons. In order to support this initiative, the district has formed several partnership in assist in providing all teachers professional development in problem-based learning and hopes to provide students a chance to build skills through design challenges next school year.  

 

London is currently seeking industry partners and grants to support these efforts and hopes to earn a STEM designation by the Ohio Department of Education by the end of next school year.
