Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
From engineering a house in kindergarten, to solving a medical mystery in middle school, to a theater stagecraft class that 3D-prints props, the district offers a wide range of STEM opportunities.
STEM at Union Public Schools is a transdisciplinary approach to learning that encourages students to inquire, explore and problem solve.
Union's vision of STEM is driven by four unique design principles, each with its own design features. This framework provides direction for implementation, aids in curriculum and professional development, and drives our district goal of 100 percent college and career ready.

Emphasize inquiry, problem-based learning and performance tasks.
Inspire and sustain a collaborative community among all stakeholders.
