Summer Academy students get hands-on with STEM

The MPS Extended Learning Opportunities Office has partnered with STARBASE Wisconsin, to offer a five-week hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) program, as part of the MPS Summer Academy programming. The STARBASE curriculum and activities are correlated to the National Science Education Standards and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Expectations. The program also supports the MPS Comprehensive Mathematics and Science Plan, which is designed to equip every student with the levels of rigor and relevance needed for success in college and career readiness. Through the 25-hour program, MPS 5th-graders interact with military and civilian professionals working in STEM fields. Watch the video from a recent class.
