Innovators in Residence

Dear Fisher Parents,
Many well-documented reports over the last few years have brought the need for comprehensive STEM education – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – into clear focus for educators at all levels. Today, an understanding of scientific and mathematical principles and the problem-solving skills developed through integrated STEM curricula are necessary for most jobs.
Thanks to a very generous anonymous donation, providing us with the technological tools to enhance science instruction at Fisher, we are excited to launch our new STEM Initiative designed to support our middle school students in becoming problem solvers, innovators, inventors and logical thinkers eager to master STEM subjects now and as they move into high school, college and careers.
What is STEM Education?
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education
STEM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM Standards of Practice guide STEM instruction by defining the combination of behaviors, integrated with STEM content, which are expected of a proficient STEM student. These behaviors include engagement in inquiry, logical reasoning, collaboration, and investigation. The goal of STEM education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st century workforce.
