MAZAMA STEM&M

 

What is STEM&M?

STEM is a national movement towards Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in education.  At Mazama High School, we’re all about STEM, but we’re also leveraging our community’s unique resources and educational partners in the area of health science. We are partnering with Oregon Tech for this program.  This allows us to add an additional “M” for Medical pathways as well.


Mazama’s STEM&M program is application based and begins in a student’s sophomore year. Students complete a rigorous, college prep curriculum and one of several unique STEM&M Pathways.  The STEM&M faculty work together to create a collegial environment and sponsor multiple extra-curricular activities for STEM&M participants each year.  STEM&M is a great place for aspiring students with an interest in science, engineering, and/or medicine to work together.  Students who complete the STEM&M program will meet Oregon Tech admissions requirements along with those of most four year universities.

The Class of 2018 and 2019 students will be able to apply to the STEM&M program in the Spring of 2016. 30 students from each grade of applicants will be selected to be a part of the cadre for the 2016/2017 school year.
