STEM at TA
STEM is an acronym for interdisciplinary learning that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Thetford Academy’s STEM curriculum goes beyond the memorization of facts to provide students with opportunities for critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative work.
STEM faculty use a hands-on approach, encouraging students to collect, record, and analyze data, and to apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems. Students in STEM courses engage in activities like robotics, water quality monitoring, horticultural design, woodlot management, modeling, statistical analysis, applied mathematics, and more.
