STEM Events at Foxcroft School

Stimulating opportunities for hands-on learning — for all ages!

Engaging the Community

Foxcroft's STEM program is tailored to our student's interests and learning styles. But did you know we also host events open to the community? Whether solving the mystery of who stole Suzie Foxcroft's identity at Expedition K2M: The STEM Summit or flying a drone for the first time during “Teachers Take Flight,” eager participants have benefitted from the expertise within our STEM Department and the partnerships we have formed with organizations such as K2M, Inc.

“By introducing girls to the exciting, challenging, and (yes!) fun side of STEM, we hope to help all girls reach their full potential, whether they decide to pursue STEM in the future or not.”

    Hosted by Foxcroft's STEM and Admission Departments, “Jump Into Game Design” is an opportunity for middle school girls in the area to get a hands-on lesson in computer programming. With knowledgable STEM faculty leading the workshop and Foxcroft's own students offering help along the way, girls will program their own version of a classic computer game from start to finish.
