When and Where

The after School STEM club will meet  every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30 in High School Room 208. The club is open to grades 3-5.

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.

Facilitator BIO

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.
