STEM is the field of study that involves the interconnected subject areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Science is the systematic study of the world around us. Technology refers to anything that is man-made and includes anything from a can opener to a super-computer. Engineering is the design, testing and building of new products and technologies. Mathematics is the investigation of patterns in shape and quantity and examples can be found in engineering, financial applications and even sports.
STEM is not just one course of study. Just as there are many STEM careers, there are many STEM pathways to prepare students with 21st century skills. Haverhill High School offers three career technical education (CTE/CTVE) programs and five STEM concentrations.
Every STEM Pathway requires a minimum of six courses (some require more) to be completed with no grade less than a “C”. There are required courses for each concentration and a list of approved electives. The required courses and the approved electives are clearly articulated in the STEM check sheets. Students may complete the STEM requirements by taking courses at the college-prep, honors or AP level.
