Resolution Solution: Zionsville Schools get creative with STEM initiative

More and more parents are turning to charter schools, virtual schools and even home schools.  Now, some public schools have made New Year’s resolutions to get more creative!

If you step into any classroom in Indiana, you will find teachers teaching the basics: reading, writing and arithmetic.  However, in Zionsville Schools, teachers are working to be more creative and some might say a little crazy with STEM.

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Coalition (STEM) is becoming such a hot topic right now, even mentioned in President Obama State of the Union address.  He called it a new challenge to redesign America’s high schools, asking administrators to add STEM classes, stating there would be reward for doing so.

    I am so thankful that my daughter is a part of this wonderful school system and has been so lucky to work with all of these great teachers and STEM coaches and learned more then I will probably ever know about writing computer code! What a fantastic program!

    Outstanding program. It is great to know that something other than Zionsville HS
    Basketball exists there. The way Dan Dakiich pimps his kid you would think nothing else goes on there.

    Seriously, do you need to take a swipe at a high school boy. It you like the STEM program and other Zionsville school academic initiatives just say so without dragging an innocent high school boy through the mud.

    Now if we can get them to include the Arts and make it STEAM we might be recognized as a truly innovative school district.
    "Federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Education and the National Science Foundation, are suggesting attitudes about STEM subjects could change by adding ‘arts’ to the mix, which would lengthen the STEM acronym to STEAM, according to the Education Week article, “STEAM: Experts Make Case for Adding Arts to STEM” Source:
