Valdosta > Pine Grove Middle School Hosts STEM Night

VALDOSTA — On Thursday, February 19, Pine Grove Middle School hosted a STEM Night where parents and community members could see the results of the initial implementation of plans to achieve STEM certification. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Pine Grove is working toward STEM certification through the Georgia Department of Education.

The first phase of a three-tier plan began this school year where two cohorts of students were enrolled in accelerated math/computer apps creation classes. Students have learned to code as well as basic theories of web design. At the presentation, parents and community members rotated through four stations to view student work and progress on achieving STEM goals. The stations included robotics, aquaponics/hydroponics, web design, and app creation. Utilizing a live feedback website, visitors were able to ask questions and make comments simultaneously. The presentations were received with rave reviews:

“I am so proud of what your students have produced. The presentations were AWESOME! True CHAMPIONS!”

“All PGM parents and the community need to see this! Glad my child is at PGM!”

“So impressed with what these students are doing across the school.”
