PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Phenix City Schools offered parents and students an opportunity to see the real-world application of the district's STEM lessons.
At the first annual STEM Night at Phenix City Intermediate School, students and parents got a chance to work together collaboratively with other students and other parents in groups to finish STEM projects.
It's meant to be an opportunity to show parents what the school system is doing curriculum-wise as far as things related to today's job market.
"One of our focuses on Phenix City schools in general is a collaborative learning approach where we as individuals through all our different backgrounds have to work together in order to be successful and in order to solve the problems that our future and our current present are showing us right now," said Bobby Cook, principal of Phenix City Intermediate School.
The event took about a year and a half to plan.
