Polaris Christian Academy offers course enrichment through our STEM program. The STEM program at PCA is designed to enhance and enrich our math, science and technology programs, not replace them.
The units planned align to those covered at your child’s grade level and include a deeper understanding of the mathematical and scientific processes. Our STEM students explore challenges such as "Can you build a bug jumper that jumps higher than 100 cm?" or "Can you calculate the density of different fluids and build a striation tower?" Through these challenges students dive deeply into the world of STEM.
