Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

The Notre Dame STEM 8 program is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach wherever possible.

 

STEM creates an environment where you will apply scientific concepts to real-world problems with the tools of mathematics and technology and engineering design.

The Notre Dame STEM 8 program is a curriculum that focuses on educating students in four specific disciplines: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM creates an environment where you will apply scientific concepts to real-world problems with the tools of mathematics, technology, and engineering design. It allows students to learn both science and math in the same class, as opposed to the usual method of learning science and math in separate classrooms. As a result, students do not need to switch classrooms in the afternoon. They instead study science in one block and math in the other. Only grade 8 students get science and math together in a class; this is beneficial since students can explore what they are interested in learning in the future when they choose subjects like physics, chemistry, earth sciences, and biology.
