GCS students explore science, technology, engineering and math through innovative STEM projects starting in elementary school, with advanced opportunities at the upper school levels.
The GCS Elementary curriculum allows our students to explore the practical applications of science, technology, engineering and math with fun and engaging projects incorporated into everyday learning.
Students develop their God-given creative and innovative talents in conjunction with critical thinking and logical-analytical processing through various STEM lab projects. Our focus is to offer learning opportunities that foster critical thinking and problem solving. We use a hands-on approach which requires students to utilize 21st Century skills. This program builds a foundation that supports STEM education in middle school and high school at GCS.
After school and summer STEM camps engage our elementary students with a focused introduction to the engineering design process and a foundational approach to coding. Activities and videos are age- and grade-appropriate, aimed at sparking students’ creative logical thought processes and critical thinking skills. Students complete activities that challenge their individual skills and abilities, while encouraging collaboration and teamwork.
Our upper level students can develop their God-given creative and innovative talents through the GCS STEM program. Our STEM curriculum is designed to help evolve students’ critical thinking and logical-analytical processing skills.
GCS STEM courses are project-based and approached through a Christian perspective on ethical usage of technology. Students can engage in the engineering design process through real-world challenge projects, or explore the world of coding with hands-on programming projects. Our STEM program also provides students opportunities to improve their proficiency in software applications and keyboarding.
