With support from the Clear Creek School District and our generous partners, CCSF supports STEM projects to help students build essential skills.
Both the Middle and High School have teams involved in Science Olympiad, a national competition involving various fields of science, including earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. The teams have incredible support from the community and our Science teachers.
Composting and Irrigation
At Carlson Elementary, Liz Bogers teaches students about how a composter works (including maintaining a worm bin) and what can be composted. The compost will be used to fertilize school garden plants. Students will also learn about drip system irrigation.
STEM and robotics have evolved from an extracurricular activity to scheduled middle school and high school classes. Stephanie Mellon, the Digital Teacher Librarian, has created collaborative spaces where students engage with technology and solve challenges. Her students feel comfortable asking questions, sharing ideas, taking risks, and testing their solutions.
During the 22/23 school year Stephanie’s STEM programs received financial support from:
Henderson Mine, in partnership with Freeport-McMoRan Foundation
The Nathan Yip Foundation
The Clear Creek Schools Foundation.
