Lake Mary Preparatory School understands the importance of technology in the modern world. We strive to integrate our STEAM initiative across all grade levels.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) are subjects incorporated into the curriculum that teach students to think critically and utilize engineering and technology with imagination and creativity to solve real-world problems, meanwhile expanding their science and mathematics understanding.
Students in the Lower School begin their STEAM journey in the Makerspace where they are introduced to computer programming, robotics, engineering, traditional arts, and crafts. We also have a Think Tank classroom that offers a hands-on study of engineering and architecture in an environment that the students can build and thinker while using materials from cardboard, LEGO's to 3D modeling and CAD software.
Our Upper School also has a dedicated Makerspace where students can push the boundaries of creativity while incorporating STEAM skills with tools such as 3D printers, laser cutter/engravers, and interactive displays. Students also have access to CAD and Graphic Design software and well as various other resources to maximize their project potential.
In our Robotics classes, students use VEX to learn robot design and engineering, and they apply their new skills to the construction of their own robot utilizing the Arduino microcomputer.
In the Graphic Design/Yearbook class, students learn about Graphic Design while using state-of-the-art iMac computers and Adobe CC, with the ultimate goal of designing Lake Mary Prep's yearbook each year.
The Griffin News Network is another initiative where the students produce their own News show in our Film & Broadcasting classes. The students use digital cameras and Final Cut Pro video editing software to show us a perfect application of students applying the use of technology.
In the Middle and Upper School our "Bring Your Own Device" program gives students the responsibility of managing their own devices. This is reinforced in the classroom with Digital Literacy and Citizenship taught throughout the school.
We pride ourselves on the advanced level of technological integration in our school as an avenue for creative expression and personal student growth.
