STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Endorsement

Brandon is determined to follow his dad’s footsteps to become a pediatrician and he believes a STEM endorsement will give him the foundation he needs to become an exceptional one.

He revels in learning the complexities of the different advanced fields of science.

“In biology, we’re learning how to use DNA and different cells to help people in therapy and, in physics, we’re learning how different forces and circuits interact.”

(STEM) Science, Technology, Engineering & Math

A student may earn a STEM endorsement by completing foundation and general endorsement requirements (including Algebra II and a fourth advanced science course). Below are the courses that will lead to an endorsement in STEM:

Option A (CTE)

  • CTE 1
  • CTE 2
  • CTE 3
  • 4th course from a STEM cluster
  • Two courses in same career cluster required
  • One advanced CTE course required

Final course in STEM endorsement must be selected from Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Career Cluster.

Option B (Computer Science)

  • Computer Science I (One Credit)
  • Mobile Application Development (One Credit)
  • Game Programming and Design (One Credit)
  • Computer Science II (One Credit)

OR

  • Computer Science I (One Credit)
  • Robotics Programming and Design (One Credit)
  • Game Programming and Design (One Credit)
  • Computer Science II (One Credit)

Option C (Math)

  • Algebra I
