About the Theme
CREC’s Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School focuses on developing strong foundational knowledge for students in four interrelated domains of STEM literacy: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The curricula provides students with significant and meaningful opportunities to conduct investigations, gather and use information, and solve problems using scientific methods of thinking and technology as tools. Engaging children in these practices helps them develop a deep understanding of the world around them.
The STEM Experience
The Academy of Aerospace and Engineering Elementary Magnet School uses a thematic interdisciplinary curriculum to emphasize inquiry-based learning. Students participating in these avenues of learning, gain the ability to perceive the relationships among societal, scientific, and technological issues.
The Academy of Aerospace and Engineering Continuum
Students attending the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering Elementary School have the unique opportunity to experience the STEM-integrated curriculum from Preschool to Grade 12. Students experience a pathway to the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering Middle School and ultimately a pathway to the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering High School. This Preschool through Grade 12 continuum allows students to build on their knowledge as they travel through each Academy, preparing them for higher education and advanced studies in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics.
