practice makes perfect
Students best understand their skills and knowledge when asked to apply it. Stemnova focuses on giving competitive and professional learning opportunities to all students to allow them the chance to see how their skills function in the real world. From hosting large STEM competitions to mini online research projects, we strive to connect facts to application.
