Liberty Hill STEM Initiative News
Our scholars have been STEMing it up… internships, robotics, camps, clubs, competitions, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) after school and more…WOW!
We are so proud of their hard work and perseverance. They have confirmed that exposure, access, and opportunity are key to unleashing the talents and abilities of our next generation STEM Stars.
Morningside Middle School students Akoriana Grant and Edgar Martinez were shining stars at the Citadel’s STEM Camp. Both were scholarship recipients and took full advantage of the amazing STEM learning opportunities.
North Charleston High School student Arthur Gibson is making a name for himself at McLeod Information Systems as a student apprentice. Gibson is being mentored by seasoned professionals and gaining valuable insight into what a career in the field of Cyber Security entails. On a broader scale, these experiences help students develop communication, organizational and teamwork skills, and gain confidence in their abilities. Scholars are even choosing to volunteer and become mentors for STEM learning within the community.
The Liberty Hill STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Team has been a source of “STEMspiration” for scholars and families in Charleston County School District. The team leads the district's efforts in providing high-quality STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning programs to students attending the Liberty Hill neighborhood schools (North Charleston Elementary, Morningside Middle, and North Charleston High).
Through the work of the Initiative, students have the opportunity to participate in PLTW (Project Lead the Way), Robotics, Coding, Toastmasters, Internships, STEM After School, Summer Programs, and a wealth of competitions and community events. They are also exposed early to local industry professionals, learning about pathways and requirements for success in STEM-related careers.
We are excited to see a significant increase in participation among our African American and Hispanics students in STEM. Families are now seeking opportunities to engage and participate in STEM programs during and beyond the school day.
A BIG Shout Out to our Champions - Administrators, Teachers, Parents, and Scholars!
