“Reaffirming and strengthening America’s role as the world’s engine of scientific discovery and technological innovation is essential to meeting the challenges of this century... I am committed to making the improvement of STEM education over the next decade a national priority.”

-President Obama


STEM- is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics


NBJH has a rich science and math curriculum. Now, with the addition of three new STEM courses, one for each grade, it is even better!

Please click on the links below for a description of the classes.


    DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION for 6th Grade


    ROBOTICS & PROGRAMMING for 7th Grade


    DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION 2 for 8th Grade


STEM education is more than just science, technology, engineering or mathematics; it is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with real-world, problem-based learning. STEM education removes the traditional barriers erected between the four disciplines by integrating them into one cohesive experience.

A STEM-literate student is not only an innovator and critical thinker, but is able to make meaningful connections between school, community, work and global issues.  STEM skills are increasingly necessary to engage in a knowledge-based economy. There is solid evidence to suggest that the fastest-growing and highest-wage jobs in future years will be in STEM fields and all employees will need to utilize STEM skills for problem solving in a wide range of industries.
