Career Portal in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) 7/8
Welcome to Career Portals in STEM. This elective is a one semester course that will focus on the careers of science and engineering.
We will focus on the following fields of engineering.
In each of these areas we will do some type of hands on or research assignment. All assignments will be completed in class and the only time a student will receive homework is if they do not do the work in class or if they have been absent and need to catch up assignments.
Most of the assignments will be done in groups, however ALL students will be responsible for doing their part of the assignment. If a student is not cooperating with their group and is not doing the required work, they will be removed from the group and will be required to complete the assignment on their own
If you have any questions please contact me through my e-mail
