STEM (Project Lead the Way).

Bridgeway Christian Academy began TWO Project Lead The Way courses in 2017.2018 in our Middle School.  Project Lead The Way is the country’s foremost provider of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs. Project Lead The Way has been helping students cultivate skills that they will need to be successful in a global economy by providing hands-on, real-world activities, projects, and problems that help students understand how the knowledge and skills they develop in the classroom may be applied to everyday life.  The program was so successful in the Middle School program last year that BCA has incorporated PLTW into Lower School (K-5th) curriculum, this year.  

Kaala Guess, who is a certified STEM instructor and Science teacher at Bridgeway Christian Academy, is laying the foundation for the students to see how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are a part of her students’ everyday life. She said, “being a part of PLTW has transformed my view of teaching and what education can look like. Watching students engage, question, create, learn from their failures, collaborate with their peers… it makes the classroom and the process of learning fun again! I love how our students get excited about overcoming a failure in a build and how they learn to take bits and pieces of each group member’s ideas to make a model or a project that the whole team can be proud of!”
