BPS STEM Department – STEAM Academy for Change

The STEAM Academy for Change (STAC) is looking to create these opportunities for students over the summer, centered around the essential question, How can I solve problems in my community using STEAM? Each week, students will explore an industry and STEAM profession that Black and Latinos are most underrepresented in. They will complete activities connected to the skills and content of the industry, which will be reinforced with the MA ?power standards? in Math & ELA appropriate for their grade level. Students will document the skills, professions, and content learned over the 5 weeks on a website they build. This introduces students to the Web Development profession, which currently has one of the lowest percentages of Black & Latinos in that Industry.
