Three Seniors Graduate with STEM Major

Three Seniors Graduate with STEM Major

 

Three students from the class of 2021 will graduate having fulfilled the requirements for the MPCS STEM Major. The STEM Major is a program for high school students geared to enhance college and career readiness in STEM fields through high-level coursework, concentrated emphasis, and career-focused developmental opportunities. 

MPCS offers four STEM Major tracks or pathways.  Each track requires a unique sequence of honors and/or AP courses in the sciences, mathematics, engineering, and/or computer programming. 

  • Science and Mathematics
  • Science, Mathematics and Engineering
  • Biological Sciences
  • Engineering and Computer Programming

The STEM Major enhances the curriculum coursework by extending student learning outside of it.  Over the course of four years, each candidate must attend a battery of STEM seminars presented by professionals, present a research project publicly at a STEM Expo, and complete a minimum of eighty hours of applied science experience in industry-based internships, co-ops, competitive robotics, university-hosted experiences, and/or work-based learning.  The collection of coursework and experience is designed to not only enhance the student’s opportunity of college acceptance and readiness, but career awareness and industry networking.

Congratulations to these seniors who have completed the requirements for the STEM Major in their respective concentrations and will wear the signature silver cord at commencement!

  • M. Buchan, Science and Mathematics
  • J. Kessock, Science, Mathematics and Engineering
