These focus areas include critical critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. These thinking capacities are cultivated through learning activities that are hands-on, relevant to local and global issues, and presented in an integrated transdisciplinary approach. Students learn how to be innovative and think like an engineer, solve real-world problems, conduct relevant research and work with professionals in a variety of STEM fields. Learn more here.
Deadline for application is SUNDAY FEBRUARY 3rd!
Sunday, February 3rd - Deadline to apply to the Olentangy STEM Academy. Note that students are selected from applications by lottery, so an application does not guarantee you a spot.

Note that even if you applied to STEM Academy you must submit a traditional HS course request schedule. If you end up selected in the STEM Academy lottery, your schedule will be adjusted later.
