GPS proudly incorporates our STEM CLASSROOM into our summer program. STEM education is an economic imperative. At GPS we understand that technological innovation accounted for almost half of U.S. economic growth for the past 30 years and almost all of the 30 fastest-growing companies in the next decade will require at least some background in STEM. Here at GPS our curriculum encourages students to work collaborative to evaluate information, formulate their thoughts to create different projects that will help them learn. GPS STEM is a more hands on approach that will keep students engaged, help them understand real world opportunities, as well as challenge them in an environment of high expectation. We work with instructors, students and parents to address the current and future needs concerning the STEM needs in the state.
