Welcome to the STEM Lab!



     My name is Mrs. Murphy and it is my pleasure to welcome all of the students here at Whispering Oak Elementary to our STEM Lab!  STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  The purpose of STEM is to combine rigorous academic concepts with real world experiences as students use science, technology, engineering, and math skills to solve engineering design challenges.

     Here at Whispering Oak Elementary, we are extremely excited to pilot Project Lead the Way, a program that is made possible through a grant awarded to Orange County Public Schools by Lockheed Martin. This program provides opporutunities for students to experience various engineering, computer science, and biomedical modules that promote higher level thinking and enhance problem-solving skills.
