STEM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) starts as a middle school elective that encourages students to dive deeper into hands on technical and engineering skills. Over the course of the semester, students build on their knowledge by constructing underwater robots. Our STEM club competes regionally with our underwater robots each year. This gives the students experience solving problems related electrical/mechanical engineering, buoyancy, density, and driving ROV’s. Along with these tasks students also have to navigate working and solving real problems in small groups, which is a valuable experience by itself. Currently the course is only offered as an middle school elective with afterschool lab days scheduled on a “as need’ basis.
