STEM

The Ford Elementary School Foundation provides financial support to our  STEM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) which is an effective method of Science instruction that integrates content and hands-on exploration and helps students recognize the importance of math and technology in pursuing inquiry. STEM also integrates all other areas of the elementary curriculum.
Science – the process of investigating natural phenomena to discover and develop new principles to describe the world around us.
Technology – the use of tools to facilitate science and engineering.

Engineering 
– the application of the scientific principles to solve practical problems.

Mathematics 
– the language of science that is used to analyze the world around us.
