Preparing Our Future

Thankful for STEMSTEM provides the foundation to develop the skills needed for both college and the workplace.

I’m thankful for STEM education because it provides our students at LAYC Career Academy with real-world science. Our students are delving very deeply into a single subject matter, but they are also learning all of the other skills they need in order to ascend into their future college and careers. Through the implementation of NGSS and CCSS in our STEM courses, not only are my students more engaged, but so am I because students are more curious and they understand the importance of asking questions.
