The McNeese STEM Academy seeks to inspire and motivate young minds to explore the world around them and imagine,
create, test and improve economically attractive solutions that solve everyday problems. The Academy uses engineering
applications as the means to teach students critical thinking, problem solving and innovation principles through fun,
imaginative, hands-on exploratory activities that integrate math and science content. The classroom experience is reinforced
during field trips where participants are exposed to real-life solutions of problems investigated in the classroom. Emphasis is
given in career exploration and oral/verbal communication of the solutions created by the participants.
