About the STEM Program at Plantation Elementary School

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Museum model provides an interactive learning environment that expands beyond the classroom walls to museums, community and the world. The integration of the Museum model in STEM curriculums offers students the opportunity to explore experiment, explain and exhibit research through engaging real world projects. Students use engineering practices to create, build, and design solutions as they discover academics in a new enriching manner. For more information, visit
