Somerset County Public School's Vision for STEM Education:

 

“SCPS STEM Education will prepare and inspire all learners to think critically, collaborate, and solve problems in order to successfully meet tomorrow’s global challenges.”

STEM education has remained consistent in Somerset County.  With the help of local and state funding, Somerset County Public Schools has acquired some interesting and very engaging materials to add to its existing curricular materials.
 
Beginning at the elementary level, students are introduced to the engineering design process as a way to solve real world problems through collaboration and application of math and science concepts.  Teachers implement "Project Lead the Way" units at each grade level through 5th grade and students are able to continue engaging in STEM lessons through STEM Application courses in middle school.
 
Learn more about "Project Lead the Way" through their website:   www.pltw.org
 
Upon entering high school, students are provided the opportunity to take advantage of the many courses at Somerset County Technical High School (SCTHS) as they determine which career pathway to embark upon following graduation.
