SLU High Expands STEM Initiative to Normandy Schools
Students at Bel-Nor School in the Normandy Schools Collaborative are participating in an innovative partnership with St. Louis University High School.
For the first time, Normandy fourth and fifth graders participated in the Clavius Project, a collaboration between the district and SLUH, which trains, mentors and supports urban middle school students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) areas.
Dr. Vivian Johnson, math lead at Bel-Nor School, says the partnership helps address a critical need in this area of study.
“The Clavius Project is a great program that connects students to STEM by providing teacher professional development, skilled volunteers, STEM resources like laptops, robots and 3D printers at a ratio allowing each student to participate,” said Johnson. “The project is preparing students for jobs that have not even been created yet. Students need the coding and technology skills to be prepared for the 21st Century workforce.”
