Further a world-class Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program.
The Stony Brook School opened its first STEM lab in March 2015 with the full expectation that it will be the cornerstone of a world-class STEM program on The Stony Brook School campus. We are committed to providing both the latest technology and the time for our students to be able to innovate, create, and design. We recognize the need to encourage all students to explore STEM education, especially students who tend to be underrepresented in this field. Stony Brook has a fantastic opportunity to lead secondary education in training students to marry STEM capabilities with the ethical and character considerations that are at the heart of The Stony Brook School’s program. Action Steps:
- Create robust programs, facilities, and scheduling that allow students to explore STEM / STE[A]M related subjects and activities.
- Hire and train the best STEM-adept teachers in this field, who also are trained to address important ethical dilemmas and responsibilities within the area of STEM.
- Improve, integrate, and invigorate teaching and learning through strategic deployment of technology and carryover into real-world engagement and problem-solving.
