CTS

STEM Only Program

Capstone Engineering Academy offers a STEM program for Home School students. This is a Shared Responsibility program with parent led programs. The STEM program offers Science, Math and Engineering & Technology classes to home school students in our Lab of Discovery. Math and Science courses follow the Alberta Education curriculum with an immersion in STEM education.

Students learn to problem solve, critical design thinking and collaboration with our hands-on STEM program.

 

Engineering and Technology Courses

Students in grades 3-9 learn or build on knowledge about small tools, including instruction on safety, use of tools and their application within a project. Students learn about new materials and their physical properties for use in a project. This may also include 3D design, integration of project components, mathematics (area, volume, sizes) and programming. Course lessons are typically include academics and hands-on experience in a lab environment. Students will have opportunities with independent design and construction of their own project.

Students can select courses from one or more Engineering and Technology streams. Each of these streams have courses that relate to the field of study. The Engineering and Technology courses listed below teach systems integration, project management and engineering in a real-world environment with hands-on skills, decision making, critical design thinking and problem solving. Students will be challenged with academics and several projects over the course.
