STEM

Powhatan County Public Schools has a long tradition of supporting STEM initiatives and coursework, as we believe these skills are an essential component in preparing today’s students for college and/or career. Additionally, we believe a problem-based, STEM-rich curriculum makes for a highly engaging and challenging learning environment. In the spring of 2015, a STEM Steering Committee convened to develop a comprehensive K-12 STEM Plan, with the goal of ensuring that all students are continually exposed to developing technologies, coding, and engineering design projects that are both age appropriate and thoughtfully aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning. Each of our elementary and middle schools have well-equipped STEM labs.  Our STEM coaches collaborate with classroom teachers to develop high quality lessons.  Powhatan High School offers a wide variety of STEM coursework and extra-curricular activities in science, computer science, engineering and mathematics.
