By the year 2020 there will be a 62% increase of jobs needed in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics(STEM). In order to help our students be competitive in these areas MVCS is participating in the S.T.E.M. education program. The donations raised by the Red and Black Golf Classic helped to purchase the first set of robotics. The Lego Mindstorms will allow students to create five different types of robots. The first step of the process has already been initiated by computer teachers, Mr. Holcombe and Mr. McCann. Throughout the first quarter K-8th has been learning about computer coding which is an essential part of understanding robotics and STEM.
