At Broken Arrow Public Schools, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) is not limited to one lab, one class or one subject. From pre-kindergarten through high school, Broken Arrow educators are integrating a strong balance of STEM in their classrooms to ignite an inventive spirit among students, allowing them to act as scientists, engineers or mathematicians. Research shows that when students are engaged in real-world problems and technology-rich environments, they are more likely to gain skills in critical thinking, problem solving, creative design, peer-to-peer collaboration and more.
As part of its current bond issue, Broken Arrow Public Schools is building an Innovation/STEM Center for high school students to meet the needs of solving real-world, relevant problems in a multidisciplinary project-based platform. The facility will feature state-of-the-art lab spaces and multiple open indoor and outdoor spaces for exploration and innovative projects. It is expected to open for the 2021-22 school year.
