What is STEM?
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
To increase student interest and knowledge in the STEM fields with simple, fun and interactive activities.

Lauren Colonair – I am a senior at Northwood Temple Academy and have attended NTA since kindergarten. I am also enrolled at the North Carolina School of Science & Math, (NCSSM) – Online Program.
I have always been highly involved at Northwood, both academically and in extra-curricular activities. I was a member of the NTA Women’s Basketball team in Middle and High School. I am part of the Beta Club, Others Mission Club, Speech Club, and Math Club, as well as the Mock Trials team and the High School Band.
Although I love all these things I am the most passionate about science and I wanted to share this passion with other students. That is why I decided to start the NTA STEM Club. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math. This club is a place where I can teach elementary children about the subject I love so much. My goal is to ignite a love of learning in our younger students and share that science can be fun.
