STEM Academy

Established in 2015-2016, the STEM Academy at SVT integrates language arts and social studies in a STEM-focused learning environment. The STEM Academy utilizes project based learning to develop the 21st century skills needed in tomorrow’s workforce: collaboration, communication, innovation, and problem solving. Students will utilize 21st Century tools, such as Chromebooks and 3D printers, to engage in relevant and rigorous learning activities that are highly collaborative and student centered. 

As 9th graders, all students will engage in the rigorous Project Lead the Way curriculum through Principles of Biomedical Science and Introduction to Engineering Design. As sophomores, students will choose one of three primary STEM pathways: Engineering/Manufacturing, Health Science/Biomed, or Computer Science/Information Technology. Throughout their high school experience, students will explore a variety of career and college readiness courses to equip them with a foundation to successfully pursue careers in STEM related fields.

The STEM Academy at Spokane Valley Tech is ideal for students who are self-motivated and enjoy working collaboratively with others to solve real-world problems.
