Why STEM?

Experience and expertise in STEM promotes competency, creativity and inventiveness along with a discovery and appreciation of the design and efficiency for the way things are done. STEM jobs in the United States in the past 10 years have grown at three times the pace of non-STEM opportunities and are projected to continue growing at this pace through the next decade. 

STEM at Kent Place

Kent Place is committed to providing girls with a vast array of opportunities to identify, understand and appreciate the comprehensive world of STEM. As a school for girls, this commitment is of utmost importance, given the broad gender divide within STEM fields, particularly for occupations within engineering (13%) and computer and mathematical sciences (25%) (NSF.gov, Science and Engineering Indicators, 2014). Our students pursue the complexities and power of scientific and technical fields, and walk through gateways to future academic and career possibilities as well. The exposure to STEM-related experiences and exploration instills the necessary global and critical-thinking skills that are paramount for them in the 21st century.
