Steubenville Cyber Academy supports the national emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, with our Cutting Edge Science program. Offered to high school students, these elective courses introduce contemporary topics relevant to today's STEM careers. Topics include computer engineering, solar technologies, bio-fuels, genetics, sports medicine, forensic anthropology, and more.
Through collaboration with several research and educational institutions, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory and California University of Pennsylvania, students learn from real experts using simulations, videos, digital labs, and other multimedia tools. For example, the Land Speed Engineering course was developed in collaboration with scientists, engineers, builders, drivers, and other experts from the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association. In this course, students will study the essential mechanical, electrical, and physical systems that enable land speed vehicles to travel hundreds of miles per hour.
STEM Planet features regular blog posts by experts working in STEM fields, forums where students and experts can engage in an ongoing dialogue, and STEM-related activities that students can conduct, discuss, and learn from.
