“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” - National Science Foundation
At ISAS, students of all grade levels experience the active use of learning technologies in and out of the classroom. They have opportunities to apply their STEM program and collaborate effectively in a diverse, interdependent and changing world through a STEM-based education centered on innovation, creativity and hands-on learning.
Students are equipped with the proper tools and technologies to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems by integrating four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
The curriculum delivery is supported with various learning resources including exposure to labs and 3D printing.
The school STEM activities are aligned with content-area standards - including the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core standards - and with the general guiding statements of the school.
Students participate in several STEM exhibitions during the school year where they demonstrate their skills in developing and presenting projects to jurors and visitors.
