This Golden LEAF grant will be used by Catawba County Schools to implement a comprehensive STEM program. The Science Education for Public Understanding Project (SEPUP) will be used to transform teaching and learning using an issue-based science curriculum in life, earth and physical sciences. Project Lead the Way will be expanded from the 8th grade program Gateway to Technology to the 7th grade Design and Model course, and establish the Introduction to Engineering and Design at a feeder high school in year two. The CyberKids program will be expanded to serve the other four middle schools as an afterschool enrichment experience. Champions in Education and the NC Center for Engineering Technology will partner with the district to connect the project with industry experiences.
