St. Rose School partners with NJIT to create STEM program
Teachers from St Rose Grammar School, Belmar, gathered June 13 to participate in a special training as part of a new partnership the school has formed with New Jersey Institute of Technology to build a STEM program and STEM Lab.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, subjects that school principal Gregory Guito is striving to reinforce them in the curriculum.
When students return to school in the fall, they will walk into a building where all of the classrooms will have undergone remodeling and there will be a new STEM lab added to the second floor.
“This fall, SRGS moves to a project based STEM/Makerspace program for students,” said Guito, noting that the hands-on activities that will be made available, will help reinforce the students’ skills in STEM subjects.
Guito said that the St. Rose School community appreciates NJIT for hosting the in-service day and for providing the support for the school’s STEM program.
