Syracuse STEM at Blodgett will be partnering with Le Moyne College to implement STEM programming. Students who successfully complete eighth grade at Syracuse STEM at Blodgett will be prepared to enter any high school or CTE program and begin studies as a freshman.




Rigorous academic program that offers students STEM-based technical learning and the opportunity to participate in project based learning experiences. Starting in sixth grade, students will be enrolled in various introductory STEM classes, such as:
• Introduction to Coding
• Math and Careers
• Introduction to Forensic Science


Teaching methods will be inquiry based and student-centered as students engage in solving engineering challenges using an engineering design process. Students have the freedom to think critically, creatively, and innovatively, as well as have opportunities to fail and try again in safe environments.


There will also be a character education component delivery through a Leadership Development course, and numerous opportunities to work in collaborative groups will help develop cooperative learning skills.
