STEM (sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics)
This is an innovative pedagogical approach that integrates science and technology into a range of topics. The success of the STEM program is tied to the emphasis on hands-on exploration, which stimulates higher-order thinking. Students develop a deeper understanding of how science and engineering work in the real world.
A bonus for French comprehension in this approach is supported by research: when French is embedded within the context of a core subject, in this case, Science, it is proven that students improve their ability to use that language.
Science is taught only in French from Grades 3 to 6.
