Thirty courses, and counting.
WT’s science, technology, engineering, and math offerings focus on developing creative problem-solvers. Students apply learning from each of these areas – and from other aspects of their education – to build knowledge and to learn how to use it.
With courses like research science, a project-based class where research, design, and data-collection are the backbone of students’ efforts, and computer science for art and music where students make art-generating programs that model works of famous artists, problem-solving and cross-curricular learning is at the heart of the experience. Students explore material and augment and solidify knowledge at a depth and breadth not typically seen in high school.
WT’s annual STEM Symposium allows students to share their learning to a broad audience and gives them direct experience with college-level research and presentations. Read more about these projects below.
I think [the STEM Symposium] is the most relevant thing we do. It is the most eye-opening thing that happens all year. There is no ‘A on a test’ that can convey what our students are capable of.
