Proud members of:
Here at Anoka High School, we believe that we must leverage cutting-edge technology and learn to problem-solve creatively in order to successfully engage in real learning. By doing so, we learn within contexts that are relevant to our world today and prepare to become the innovators, engineers, and artists of tomorrow.
That is why we offer our STEAM Certification Pathway.
The STEAM Certification Pathway focuses on the real-world application of our classroom learning, hands-on interactive experiences, making connections between disciplines, and building relationships between peers, teachers, and industry professionals. Our students have the opportunity to delve into 3D modeling, design and fabrication, dance, engineering and robotics, photo/video/digital media, music, and more.
ADDITIONALLY...We encourage and work with our students to participate in any additional programming that speaks to them and fits within their schedules. Our students include AP scholars, athletes, band members, student council members, and more.
Why is STEAM for you?
The STEAM Experience offers a number of unique opportunities, such as:
- Priority access to cutting-edge technology
- Grade-level, career, and industry field trips
- Professional mentors + networking opportunities
- Digital portfolio-building for college and careers
- Annual STEAM Expo participation
- STEAM certification + STEAM graduation medal
The Center for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math at Anoka High School offers the STEAM Certification Pathway for students who want to explore the connections between the arts, sciences, engineering and math while further developing technology and computer skills.
STEAM uses project-based learning and the design thinking model to engage students. The classes in the STEAM program will strengthen students' abilities to be creative and flexible problem solvers, explore different ideas, and communicate well with others. We facilitate a collaborative approach to learning that embraces technology, encourages unique solutions, welcomes creative and inventive thinking as well as problem-solving, to prepare for careers in computer science, the arts, and engineering.
The STEAM Expo was a success!
