At AGE, STEM, education. ...disciplines to promote real-world experience


AGE Students are required to come up with projects that they think will help the environment. Open ended problems are presented to them. While some students may solve the problem for example using a resource such as solar energy, another team may solve the same problem using turbines and energy from steam. In both cases creativity and independent thinking can be demonstrated.


ST1.1 Indicator Narratives


ST1.1 The STEM school/program supports non-traditional student participation through outreach to groups often underrepresented in STEM program areas


What were the areas of strength noted in the Self Assessment?


AGE’s multiethnic population of staff and students are mainly from the geographic location of bergen county as well as neighboring counties such as Union and Hudson. All programs at the school are open to the general public.  


The Academy of Greatness and Excellence (AGE) since its inception in 2013, has been actively seeking students to participate both in the regular academic program, as well as in the annual summer program. As part of the enrollment campaign, AGE reaches out to the general public through many channels of communication and advertisements both within the school population and the general public. The school has an outreach plan in place to help advertise and encourage participation in all STEM events by almost all underrepresented groups and minorities. hence, all stakeholders are kept well informed of both STEM learning and other disciplines taught in the school.


Many STEM events are held at the school throughout the school year to encourage participation of all students. In addition to school events, the summer program contains many science activities and field trips. It has been noted that many students show a high level of enthusiasm to participate in STEM related events. The AGE STEM events have a strong presence on social media. The AGE facebook page highlights all school events  on a weekly basis.
