We aim to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in our students.
Westminster’s STEM program, which begins in the elementary school and extends through high school, focuses on a rigorous, nationally-recognized curriculum called Project Lead the Way (PLTW) that develops our students' ability to collaborate, think creatively, communicate effectively, and work independently to solve problems.
Students have the opportunity to infuse project-based learning techniques in designing toys, solving real-world problems, building robots, and learning programming using Scratch, VEX Blocks, and ROBOTC languages. Fourth and fifth grade students who wish to further their engineering skills may also apply for the VEX IQ competitive robotic teams. These after-school student clubs allow students to build and program their own robot, and to showcase their skills at local, state and national competitions.
Since its implementation, Warrior Robotics has won numerous awards at both the District and State level, has received several World bids and was recently granted the Design Award at the VEX IQ Elementary School World Championship.
