STEAM Summer School

 

***Attendance by invitation only***

Thank you for your interest in South Pointe Middle School’s 2020 Title 1 STEAM Summer School! Our program is specifically designed to support and maintain the academic development of our Title 1 students over the extended summer break.  This year’s summer school experience will be truly exciting and unique!  Our summer school staff have been working extremely hard to create a project-based, distance learning program that engages students while developing their achievement in Language Arts and Math through the Engineering lens of the STEAM curriculum.  Over the course of four weeks, students will be learning about the innovative field of Mechanical Engineering.  One of the most diverse and versatile engineering fields, mechanical engineering is the study of objects and systems in motion. Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life. Students will have the opportunity to build and enhance their own designs of a variety of hands-on engineering projects!

The following information is provided to assist you in planning for your child’s participation in this exciting summer program:

  • SPMS 2020 STEAM Summer School is offered for entering 7th and 8th-grade Title students.
