Wheeler STEAM Academy Description


What is the STEAM Academy?

The Wheeler STEAM Academy is a program offered to Wheeler High School students who are interested in pursuing advanced opportunities in any of the STEAM Fields, with a particular emphasis on Science and Math.  The program is open to any student who is interested and able to complete science courses at an Honors or AP Level.  STEAM Academy students will be placed together in cohort classes for their STEAM Sciences.  Students will have access to an accelerated, diverse, and innovative STEAM curriculum.  The successful completion of the program will require that students complete all of the curriculum requirements as outlined below.  Students are intentionally given as much flexibility in their schedule as possible in order to pursue their own interests, whether in or out of the STEAM fields.
By the end of the sophomore year, STEAM Academy students will have completed all of their required high school science courses, allowing them the opportunity to pursue their interests in science and other areas in their junior and senior years.

STEM Symposium 2014

The second annual Wheeler STEM Symposium was held on March 11, 2014. It nearly doubled in scope and size from the inaugural symposium held just a year earlier. There were about 30 staff members participating from varied disciplines in math, science, engineering and technology as one would expect. However, subject areas of government, history, language arts, and agriculture also were represented, as the event demonstrated the epitome of cross-curricula collaborative project based learning. Besides the diversity of subject content, the inclusion of elementary and middle school students, and a MOID special education class, displayed the diversity and collaborative efforts across age levels and abilities. There were over 250 students that participated by displaying and demonstrating what they had learned and researched through the project based experience in and out of the classroom setting. Over 1000 visitors and guests experienced the synergy that radiated from our students in the classrooms, corridors, and hallways as they communicated to the guests about their project.
On behalf of the students and staff of Wheeler High School, East Cobb Middle School, Sedalia Park Elementary, East Valley Elementary, Mount Bethel Elementary, and the Center for Advanced Studies Foundation, who sponsored this event, we thank our guests, parents, and community members who came out to celebrate STEM with our students.
