High school STEM teacher Seth Carper completed a Masters course on parametric design at the end of last year and over part of the summer.
STEM at Concordia
Concordia International School puts great focus on STEM education.
With a diverse range of top-level classes, and a focus on sustainability, we provide opportunities for students to be creators rather than simply consumers of knowledge.
A Concordia student’s STEM journey begins with Maker Space and the Week of Code in elementary school, where students learn subjects like coding and sustainable engineering, and are introduced to the design process and scientific method, along with our keen focus on mathematics fundamentals.
Our STEM program evolves through middle school, where students can learn robotics, reinforce their coding, and enhance core math and science skills.
Concordia’s STEM program expands at the high school level to include a diverse range of subjects. Our Advanced placement STEM offerings include AP Physics, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus, AP Computer Science, and AP Environmental Science.
Concordia also offers high level STEM electives like STEAM LAB and Robotics, as well as cutting-edge disciplines like Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning.
We host our own annual Concordia International Research Conference (CIRCH) to provide students an opportunity to collaborate with other schools and present their research findings to a wider audience.
Our expert teachers nurture individual STEM projects, guiding students through the scientific method and engineering design process, and offering hands-on experiences.
The students tackle in-house projects, utilizing data analytics, computer science, biology, and chemistry to enhance our school and community. Student-driven STEM projects have included analyzing wellness data, optimizing bus management and tracking, creating autonomous cars and IoT devices, solving robotics problems, and using machine learning to recommend books, identify bacteria in a petri dish, and recognize objects and people.
These research projects offer students an authentic experience - something they would do outside of school.
Concordia unites STEM education across divisions, fostering collaboration among teachers. We provide the ideal conditions, tools, and a supportive community that nurture students' growth, both academically and personally, all while preparing them for a present and future characterized by an unprecedented pace of technological progress.
Come discover how Concordia fuels students' passion for science and creates the perfect environment for their growth and success!
