In all three divisions, Kent Place girls experience science, technology, engineering and mathematics in their everyday classes. From engineering mazes for Bee-Bots in Kindergarten to designing experiments in AP Physics, all of our students are involved in hands-on, real-world STEM learning. Through their experiences, our students develop essential skills for the 21st century — the ability to question, collaborate, think critically, problem solve and communicate. Activities highlight the relevance of STEM in their daily lives and the importance of considering career choices within these fields.
Do the Hands-On Work
There's a real commitment to STEM work here. In Algebra 2, everyone has to do a disease project to see how logarithms affect epidemiology and how fast a disease spreads. In physics class, we didn't just learn about energy, we actually built a roller coaster. We learn how applications of what we're doing apply to everyday life, which makes the work that much richer. -Ivana, senior
