STEM at LFS
Our students enjoy a comprehensive approach to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In addition to differentiated math instruction that challenges every child in a leading math curriculum, our applied science involves both experiments and field observations connected to classroom themes, such as the life-cycle of Monarch butterflies. Beyond their core classroom experience, students engage in both traditional manual arts and 21st-century technology. The manual arts occur in our Shop class twice a week, and include model-making, dioramas, and other projects utilizing wood, glue, wire, beads, string, yarn, and found objects. All grades include projects in coding as part of their curriculum. In addition, our Tech Club meets after school for age-appropriate coding, robotics, stop-motion animation, and green-screen videography. Currently 1/3 of the school participates in that program.
