Bulloch County Schools is establishing STEM Exploratory Labs in each of its nine elementary schools for all enrolled K-5 students. The school system piloted this program at Brooklet Elementary, Mill Creek Elementary and Nevils Elementary during the 2015-16 school year, and after its success, the district and school administrators have committed to implement labs in each elementary school.
All of the district's nearly 5,000 K-5 students will cycle through the labs at least 45 minutes each week, just like they do art, music and physical education. While there they will have the opportunity to solve real-life problems and collaborate on projects related to science, math, technology and engineering.
Bulloch County Schools has multiple STEM-related community partners, who collaborate with our schools on STEM experiences, events and projects: Georgia Southern University's Interdisciplinary STEM Institute; GA Southern's Center for Sustainability; and multiple STEM-related departments at the university.
