 Introduction to STEM

 

The Brick Township School District's STEM Academy is designed to provide an educational experience that emphasizes the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Interested students will be provided with the opportunity to develop STEM skills needed to compete in a demanding global economy. STEM professions are currently the fastest growing fields in the workplace, yet the United States lags significantly in regard to producing skilled STEM workers. The Brick Township STEM Academy will provide the opportunity for students to engage in a focused curriculum and develop strong skills in STEM fields. The Brick Township Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics will endeavor to utilize an innovative educational model to provide students with a rich and rigorous educational experience. This innovative approach allows us to provide an enriched program with the benefits of being in a comprehensive high school setting.
