Christine Smith, principal of Walt Clark Middle School in Loveland, Colorado, describes her middle school STEMX approach:

STEMX uses academic and career planning tools to help students see what their interests are and what classes they might like. They might not know exactly, so we give them choices. They can rotate through a different pathway each quarter, selecting from areas like aviation, robotics, applied arts (such as graphic design), computer sciences, communications and information systems, and health sciences. They can even study drones.

Christine shares that her teachers are including STEM ideas and concepts in their other courses as well. Christine notes, “We’re always trying to show students the relevancy of what they’re learning. We want our students to see STEM principles and career and technical education content throughout the day.”
