What is S.T.E.A.M.?

S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

Our S.T.E.A.M. Program

Our S.T.E.A.M. Program consists of a structured Elementary (1st to 5th Grade) daily advanced enrichment class and a Middle School (6th-8th Grade) after school club. Both will be filled with exciting and hands-on curriculums and lessons in subjects like programming, computer science, robotics; just to name a few.

Elementary Eligibility will be based on academics, teacher recommendation, and parent consent/ involvement (please see “requirements” section below for more info). At the start of the school year students will be evaluated for the first two weeks for consideration for the program. Parent’s will be notified if a student demonstrates improvement and becomes eligible later in the year. Check back soon for the forms that we will need to be submitted in order for students to be accepted into the program. Middle Schoolers will also have an opportunity to participate and learn these subjects in our after-school club.

S.T.E.A.M. Program Director

Eduardo Ramos

Mr. Ramos began his teaching career many years ago at Dade Christian School when he completed his student teaching internship after attaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education from Southeastern University. He furthered his studies earning a Master of Arts in ESOL from Nova Southeastern University in 2005. Mr. Ramos has taught at the elementary, middle school, and adult education levels. Additionally, he was selected to train and become a certified educator for the Raspberry Pi Foundation, an initiative to raise computer science instruction worldwide.

Mr. Ramos looks forward to facilitating our first Robotics & S.T.E.A.M. Advanced Enrichment Program for the 2018-2019 school year. The class will be challenging, motivational, and creative, integrating advanced and hands on learning in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) with a Biblical foundation. The goal is to develop a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. S.T.E.A.M. is a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum. Mr. Ramos’ desire is to equip students academically and spiritually in their development into leaders for the next generation.
