We are excited about the addition of a STEM Lab at Sand Hill-Venable. One of the former computer labs has been transformed into a creative learning environment for students to collaborate on activities or challenges which portray real world problems in an engaging and fun way. The STEM Challenge curriculum is integrated with the science curriculum for each grade level. Students complete the STEM Challenge through a five step Engineering and Design Process. Students work collaboratively to Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, and Improve the designs that meet the challenge or problem they have been given. Collaboration is crucial, and working through the Engineering Design Process allows the students to have a step-by-step plan to solve a problem. 


Buncombe County Schools emphasize that exposure to Science, TechnologyEngineering and Mathematics is essential in today’s world.
