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.
New for 2018-2019 - Saint Nicholas School offers a Makerspace Classroom to supplement our science lab. The Makerspace will be equipped with technology such as chromebooks, 3D printers, robotics, electronics, and a variety of supplies and materials necessary to bring this hands-on problem-solving learning experience to all students in Grades K-8.
Our St. Nicholas Team (Leggo My Eggos) is very proud to present their 1st place award for their Robot Design in the FIRST LEGO League Into Orbit Robotics Competition. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)3 public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills. We are all beyond proud of what the St. Nicholas Team has accomplished in their first year of competing!
