The Wilkes-Barre Area School District STEM Academy is a dedicated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program housed in the Technology wing at Meyers High School.
STEM education is a multidisciplinary, project-based educational approach that is designed to inspire and develop our students to become future leaders in technology, science, business and industry. STEM curriculum is built upon areas like engineering design, computer-aided drafting, 3D modeling, architecture and other related areas. This program employs a rigorous learning environment by delivering curriculum through a multimedia-rich environment as well as hands on opportunities to construct models and test ideas.
The intent of this program is to develop cooperative opportunities with local higher education as well as local businesses and industries to give the students real world learning experiences. The interactions with these organizations will benefit the development of our students by providing them with the specific skills that these organizations are looking for in future students/employees.
As the demand for engineering and technology jobs continues to grow, the Wilkes-Barre Area STEM School strives to give students the opportunity to pursue engineering and technology related courses while still in high school.
