From rockets to robotics, Trinity STEM students are being equipped with the skills they need to solve problems on earth and in space. Students who are interested in STEM can progress through a pipeline that will prepare them for post-secondary studies or careers. Starting in elementary grades, students are introduced to coding through code.org and learn graphical programming to problem-solve.
In middle school, students have an opportunity to take a coding elective where they are introduced to computer science as a way to problem-solve. They also create a personal website using HTML and complete hands-on labs with electronics and circuit boards. Additionally, the students will complete class projects which include robots, computer games, and rocket flights, so they will be prepared for the transition to high school.
When students advance to high school, their skills become more refined. They develop their problem-solving abilities using Python programming language and delve further into electronics using Raspberry Pi and Arduino. They also learn robotics, cybersecurity, team development, and testing in the school’s Advanced Maker Lab. Students also participate in competitions such as the Congressional App Challenge.
Students in the program have the opportunity to further expand their skills and build their résumé through summer internships in real-life work environments with various companies and government agencies.
