STEM by Design
THE GLOBAL VIEW OF DESIGN
Design students engage in activities that are meaningful and relevant. Learners make connections between their personal needs and those of the larger community.

The mission of Video Production is to provide students with the training to become filmmakers, editors, sound designers, and broadcast journalists. Pirates Unplugged is the brainchild of Phillips Preparatory students. Students acquire skills in video editing, sound engineering, and design as they record and create daily news segments. These segments are shared with the community through the school's YouTube channel.
The visual and performing arts courses offered at Phillips are band, chorus, art, and drama. STEM and the engineering design process are evident in all of these disciplines. In fact, many educators now use the acronym STEAM (science, technology, engineering, ARTS, and math).
The STEM acronym represents the four distinct disicplines of Science, Technology, Enginnering, and Math. However, the aim of STEM education is to explore how these subjects pervade every content area. The engineering design process is applicable to every disicpline. STEM is relevant in every aspect of our lives.
Ready...Set...Go!Physical Education and athletics incorporate multiple STEM concepts. Students calculate speed for track, determine wind resistance for archery, design plays for football, compute force for volleyball, and more. P.E. and organized sports explore the STEM disciplines in a practical way that students encounter every day.
Rigor and RELEVANCE.
