5-minute Introduction to your CESA 10 College & Career Readiness PK12 STEM Service
STEM education is the intentional integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to create a student-centered learning environment in which students investigate and engineer solutions to problems, and construct evidence-based explanations of real-world phenomena with a focus on a student’s social, emotional, physical, and academic needs through shared contributions of schools, families, and community partners.

"Jennifer Peck is a STEM guru! She spent lots of time in our classroom leading engaging and exciting STEM activities such as coding robots, building a Lego swing ride, and creating a cardboard habitat. We are over the moon excited for her return! Our students cheer when they hear it's a STEM with Ms. Jen Day! "

Wisconsin DPI STEM Education Goals The Wisconsin vision for STEM learning is that "All students use a collaborative, innovative, and logic-based transdisciplinary approach, rooted in content knowledge, skills, and experiences, to identify and solve contemporary problems.” It is critical to note that this vision statement is for all students. Regardless of life paths chosen, all people of our world need to be “STEM literate.”
