Carver after school students at Brien McMahon High School learn how to tie-dye t-shirts. The STEM to STEAM movement has been taking root across the country over the past several years and is surging forward as a positive mode of action to truly meet the needs of a 21st century economy. STEM alone misses several key components that many employers, educators, and parents have voiced as critical for our children to thrive in the present and rapidly approaching future.
Carver students gathered in the Carver Community Center gym yesterday to exhibit their STEAM creations.
See all the photos of the showcase here in our Facebook album.
The Roton Middle School R.A.M.S. after school program runs Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 5:30. It is run by certified teachers and teaching aides from Roton Middle School. The program Coordinator is Roton teacher Dean Vaccaro.

Carver is very enthusiastic about and proud of our partnership with the Classical Studies Magnet Academy (CSMA) in Bridgeport. This is a "themed" Pre-K to 8th grade public school in Bridgeport’s West Side neighborhood for more than 400 students. Its curriculum of classical literature, art and music utilizes the Paideia instructional methodology (traditional lecturing, coaching, and the Socratic method of extended discussion). Instruction is project-based, involving frequent assemblies, presentations and field trips. CSMA occupies a 123-year-old structure, the oldest school still in use by the district. The school also rents a nearby closed Catholic school for their Pre-K to 2nd grade students.
