In alignment with our Portrait of a Graduate, Akron Public Schools works to ensure students are College Ready, Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled.

STEM Capstone Presentations of Learning
05/09/2020
STEM Capstone is the culminating experience in the APS STEM education where STEM seniors select a problem from their community that they want to solve and follow the STEM Design Process to create a product to solve the problem! STEM Seniors maintain a digital portfolio as they work through the STEM Design Process to solve the problems they have chosen and then create a short film to document their experience. Despite school buildings shutting down and losing the support (and acting/editing talents) of their classmates, the class of 2020 persevered and finished their work! Our Top Twelve are profiled here. Please enjoy perusing their portfolios and watching their documentaries. It was a fun year and I’m extremely proud of the STEM High School Class of 2020!
