What is the STEM Academy?


The STEM Academy is a program run by Justin Brown at Kealakehe High School. This program is meant to introduce students to problems they will face in the real world and to teach students to think differently and more logically. In this class, we will take advanced courses and participate in projects and events worldwide. We will learn in depth engineering skills and knowledge to prepare us for the real world and to give us the tools we need to excel in life. We created this website to showcase and explain our Buiding Challenge Design Project. In this project, we created building challenges for elementary schools that need more access to STEM activities. These challenges are basic, hands-on engineering challenges designed to get group members working and thinking as a team and as an engineer. We organized these challenges into a book. This book is full of original ideas that challenge your brain to find solutions and to think like an engineer. Our goal for these challenges is to supply an affordable and effective educational resource for teachers who want to give their students hands-on projects.
