On Monday, Dec. 12 we will be showing an SBL Information Video starting at 8 a.m. via Live Stream on STEM's YouTube.

Your fellow classmate, Ben Grossman, is living out STEM's mission of Never Stop Innovating and has partnered with STEM Administration to develop ways to help students learn and understand Standards Based Learning.

In true PBL fashion, Ben is trying to solve a real-world PBL to help all STEM students by reducing stress and improving learning.

Way to go Ben!!

A link to the Live Stream will be in next week's Student Newsletter and the video will be available on STEM's YouTube channel for reference.
