TUXEDO — Administration and staff from the Wappingers School District, located in Dutchess County, recently visited the schools in the Tuxedo School District to learn from faculty and students the components necessary to implement a K-12 STEM Program.

Students at both the George Grant Mason School and George F. Baker High School were delighted to show off how they integrate technology into their classroom lessons on a daily basis.

Students shared that STEM is much more than technology, as it is a methodology that promotes thinking “outside the box.” Students demonstrated how they work in groups and collaborate to problem solve while overcoming the restrictions or “constraints” that are placed on them when developing solutions.

Tuxedo is in its fourth year of STEM education and the approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with the arts and humanities. Through rigorous engagement in inquiry, applied practice, collaboration, and investigation students engage in project-based challenges and diverse assessments that focus on real-world applications.

"The goal of STEM education at Tuxedo," said Tuxedo School Superintendent Nancy Teed, "is to better prepare its students for the challenges of tomorrow with the skills of today. Other school districts have expressed interest in visiting the Tuxedo STEM Programs as well and will be doing so in the near future.
