STEM Expeditions promote science inquiry, math practices, and engineering design principles by incorporating STEM concepts into real-world, relevant activities. 

Each Expedition begins with an Essential Question, which sets the focus and shapes students' thinking. The overall goal is to create critical thinkers and problem solvers by presenting real-world challenges to engage learners with the subject matter.

Fundamental to the Expeditions learning process are collaboration and teamwork. Students collaborate in pairs and in teams as they seek to answer their Essential Question while recording data in logbooks and data sheets to authenticate their learning.

zSpace Stem Lab

The zSpace STEM Lab is designed for student-centered learning, with teachers in the lab as facilitators.


Working together to solve problems helps students grasp complex concepts and builds collaborative skills. With zSpace, students can perform highly engaging tasks that are often impossible in the real world, like exploring a volcano or experimenting with zero gravity.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) STEM Lab



Middle school is the perfect time for students to explore and learn that there is more than one way to reach a solution.
