Covington Catholic Will Host NKY Chamber’s 2018 STEM Day Out Program
Covington Catholic High School (CCH) is proud to serve as a host site for the 2018 STEM Day Out program on July 18. STEM Day Out is a free experiential learning opportunity for students in grades six through eight from across the region, produced by the Northern Kentucky Chamber (NKY Chamber) in partnership with NKY Education Council and Greater Cincinnati Stem Collaborative.
The theme for CovCath’s STEM Day Out session is Engineering: Breaking Down the Problem.
Thirty students will experience sessions on Electric Motors, Innovation, and Gearing Robots. Each session will be facilitated by one of CovCath’s engineering teachers, with assistance from CCH students.
STEM at Covington Catholic:
Covington Catholic has made big commitments to STEM over recent years, including the adoption of Project Lead The Way’s (PLTW) curriculum program and the construction of a new academic wing with STEM program-specific facilities - which is to be completed this Fall. PLTW is a nonprofit organization and industry leader that provides STEM curriculum, in-depth professional development, and certification of teachers for over 10,500 schools nationwide. CCH has partnered with PLTW since 2015 and now has four PLTW certified instructors, including PLTW Master Teacher and CCH STEM Director, Bob Lind. CCH is 1 of only 133 high schools (1 of 6 in Kentucky) to be named a PLTW Distinguished School.
