Middle School Steam
STEAM education builds cognitive power, even in the youngest learners.
Students will exercise both the left and the right hemispheres of their brains by engaging in a hands-on, activity based curriculum called Project Lead The Way (PLTW).
Every middle school scholar will be challenged to test their limits and connect what they learn in the classroom to making a real-world impact. Here, students gain deeper exposure to STEAM pathways through computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.
Sixth Grade Scholars will:
Apply the engineering design process to solve problems and create virtual images of their innovative solutions to everyday problems.
Study mechanical systems and use the VEX Robotics platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms.
Seventh Grade Scholars will:
Investigate energy and the environment to design alternative energy sources for reducing consumption.
Discover computer science principles as they create their own basic apps using MIT App Inventor.
Eighth Grade Scholars will:
Explore genetic testing and solve a medical mystery by investigating DNA evidence found at a crime scene.
Study and apply concepts of physics, chemistry, and nanotechnology to make ice cream and clean up an oil spill.
Anti-racism in Brooklyn Center
Diverse. Inclusive. Courageous.
In Brooklyn Center, we advocate for social, economic and political change to meet the needs of our beautifully eclectic community. And we know that diversity must lead to inclusion if we want to make meaningful progress. So, instead of avoiding discomfort, we work to reject our biases — big or small — by confronting them with ferocity and compassion.
