Learn Ten Reasons Students Should Volunteer

STEM+ Point Documentation

(required for freshman Academy students)

STEM Academy students who are in the 9th grade are expected to earn STEM+ Points.  STEM+ Points are earned by participating in activities above and beyond the classroom time and are designed to extend and enrich your STEM knowledge and experience.

STEM+ Points are earned a  number of different ways, and different activities are worth a different number of points. A Code Word will be provided for each STEM+ Point opportunity. You will need this code word to log your points.

  • Lunch and Learn
  • Mentor Meetings
  • Spark Surveys
  • Field Trips
  • Participating in a STEM-related activity, club or team
  • STEM-related competitions
  • Serving as a STEM Ambassador

STEM+ Points are documented on a quick and easy STEM+ Point Google Form.
