Teaching and learning with a 

STEM State of Mind

Powhatan County Public Schools

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 students for college and/or career readiness in the 21st century. Additionally, we believe a problem-based, STEM-rich curriculum provides a highly engaging learning environment that will benefit all students. In order to take our program to the next level, a STEM Steering Committee was formed in the spring of 2015 to identify and prioritize our future needs.
