STREAM = Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math at White Pine School.

According to the U. S. Department of Commerce, STREAM occupations will grow at a rate five times faster than other occupations over the next twenty years. For this reason, White Pine School realizes the importance of preparing students for this next generation of industry and employment. Throughout this program, STREAM students completed coursework to increase their science literacy and practice critical math skills. Students use innovative technologies, such as augmented reality robots and a Dremel 3D Printer, to engineer solutions to common, real world problems based on the latest, cutting edge STREAM curriculum.
