S.T.E.M. refers to the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Renaissance Charter School at Poinciana has implement a S.T.E.M. initiative to improve knowledge and awareness of S.T.E.M. development. Poinciana plans to improve student competitiveness in the disciplines and hopefully impact the S.T.E.M. profession in the future. Our curriculum is K-8th and was independently developed by our curriculum support team. The curriculum consists of instructional units devoted to each discipline (science, technology, engineering and math). Students are exposed to projects, experiments and hands-on activities related to S.T.E.M. Additionally, our academic partnership with the University of Central Florida’s S.T.E.M. Department will enhance our program through excursions, field experiences, field trips, job shadowing, guest speakers and more.
