HAFTR parents view STEM push


In today’s hi-tech world, STEM is an important part of the educational curriculum in any school. HAFTR has created a robust Nursery–12 program in which every student participates in STEM classes, and those STEM skills are embedded into the everyday curriculum.

Recently, HAFTR’s parent body was invited by to see first hand what the students have been experiencing. A digital playground was created for hands-on experience for the parents. Parents used robotics, laser cutters, 3D printers, light tables, Raspberry Pi stations, and more.

They were also able to observe the vertical integration that the STEM program brings to HAFTR, as each division of the school builds upon the skills learned in prior grade levels.
