    Welcome to B. F. Grady's Virtual STEM Academy!

    Welcome back for the 2nd semester of our 2020-2021 School Year!  This 2nd semester the STEM Academy will start the new year off with remote instruction and we will be using Canvas for assignments and quizzes.  Please communicate with me through your student email account, Canvas Inbox messages, or Class Dojo.  In addition, student assignments will be graded and we will have “live” meetings.  Beginning Thursday, January 7, 2021, your STEM "Live Google Meeting" day is every Thursday. 

    Every Thursday, go to:  meet.google.com to join your “Live” Meeting".  Check your student email for your exact time and code.  Thank you!

    My office hours will be Monday-Friday 8:00-8:30; 9:50-10:20; and 11:30-12:00.  The fastest way to communicate with me is via email at jhoward@duplinschools.net.

    About the STEM Academy

    The STEM Academy is a very different, challenging, fun, learning environment for students.  Students work with a partner in a laboratory environment to explore science, technology, engineering, and math skills, by completing hands on activities, using multimedia instruction.  Students will also have the opportunity to develop their communication and social skills, while exploring related career opportunities.  

    The STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Academy at B. F. Grady offers students an opportunity to explore thirteen different modules including:  Alternative Energy; Biotechnology; CNC Manufacturing; Electronics; Energy, Power & Mechanics; Engines; Environmental Issues; Forensic Science; Ideas & Innovations;  Immunology; Robots; Sustainable Agriculture; and Video Production.

    It is a pleasure for me to help your student learn skills he/she can use in school, in their career, and in life!  Thank you for this opportunity.  I look forward to a great 2nd semester of the 2020-2021 school year!
