TCA makes strides in growing STREAM curriculum

When students in Trenton Catholic Academy, Hamilton, arrive on the first day of school Sept.4, there will be additional components included in the school’s STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Art and Mathematics) curriculum.

Since the implementation of Project Lead the Way STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum during the 2016-2017 school year, TCA has continued to add courses, fully integrating the curriculum for Lower School students in grades K-8. This year, another PLTW module, Advanced Computer Science, will be included in the Upper School curriculum.

Students will also be able to apply the engineering principles they have learned while they assemble a greenhouse in the school courtyard.  The greenhouse has been purchased and the foundation has been laid and is awaiting students in both the Upper and Lower Schools to take ownership of this project and construct the building with assistance from their teachers.

Once constructed, students will utilize the greenhouse for classwork and extracurricular activities throughout the school year.

The Lower School also announced that. John Kocsis, Lower School Technology instructor and FIRST Lego/Robotics and Coding Club Moderator, is a nominee for the CAPE (Council for American Private Education) Teacher of the Year Award.  The final step in the nominee process includes a formal interview with judges scheduled for the end of September.

For more information on curriculum additions, contact Rose O’Connor, director of marketing, at 609-586-3705 ext. 147.
