Over the past year and a half, HPMS has worked tirelessly to create a robust & engaging STEM program for our Middle School students. Progressive, collaborative and project based, this curriculum seamlessly integrates with Montessori philosophy, giving students hands-on experiences to learn, fail and iterate together.
Our yearly weather balloon project is a highlight of the STEM program (and a student fave!). Students build a weather balloon armed with mini cameras, onboard computing and 3D-printed housings and then send it off to space, reaching heights of 120k feet! Then, the data analysis begins so that the process can be fine-tuned for the next voyage.
Check out this film of our maiden voyage, and stay tuned for this year’s recap!
