An investment in curiosity
At its heart, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is all about curiosity. Your investment gives our students the opportunity to ask questions, experiment, observe, and imagine. Whether they’re in the outdoor classroom, the science lab, or the SPARK makerspace.
From programming robots in Pre-K to constructing working pianos out of paper and wire in the Upper School, Pike students are exploring how STEM works. And, more important, how it can work for them: building digital portfolios, composing music, conducting online research, managing their workflow, and so much more. Foster curiosity with a gift to STEM.
The introduction of Seesaw, for example, has helped our students connect with their learning through curating and showcasing their learning portfolios. In that sense, technology has become a powerful tool for self-reflection and self-assessment. It allows students to take charge of and pride in their learning.Maggie O’Brien., 1st Grade Teacher
