Meriden students excel in every area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The girls’ exceptional performance in national and international examinations and competitions is testament to their success. But more than this, Meriden girls love STEM: they are excited by the possibilities it offers them to build a brighter future.
As early as Pre-Kindergarten, STEM learning is built into aspects of the curriculum and provides an excellent springboard from which girls jump into the technology-rich Kindergarten curriculum.
In the Junior Years, Meriden girls establish strong foundational learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Led by accomplished classroom teachers and the Dean of STEM, Junior School students learn to use STEM to think creatively, solve real-world problems and acquire the technical skills necessary for workforces of the future.
Junior School classrooms are equipped with smartboards, iPads and laptops and the girls learn how to work safely and efficiently in a technology-rich environment.
Meriden girls enjoy attending classes in the newly-built STEM Lab in which they learn to develop their own technical innovations.
In the Senior School, STEM is integrated into every Key Learning Area. In Meriden’s classrooms, girls use smartboards and laptops to research, understand and create.
Girls enjoy working in The Foundry, a high-tech open-plan learning space dedicated solely to STEM. Engineering, robotics and coding classes and clubs are held here and the students see their projects come to life through robotics equipment, electrical circuits, 3D printers and an industrial-standard CNC machine. At Meriden, girls are supported with everything they need to succeed in STEM at school and beyond.
