Innovative Learning

Inspiring young minds...

through discovery, building & problem solving

Innovation at Providence extends beyond the normal boundaries of STEM.  We’ve intentionally redesigned spaces on campus for the purpose of enhancing student learning through creative, hands-on experiences.  Our goal is for students to develop a understanding of the concepts through observation, inquiry, research, and discovery.  

Pursue their passions through hands-on exploration.
Inspire a passion for lifelong learning.


Robotics & Coding

Elective offerings in Middle School provide opportunities for students to further pursue their STEM interests. Younger students use Legos and Finch robots to begin coding. Students across all grade levels are engaged with the coding, design, and engineering process.



Students explore the created world and develop 21st century skills through robotics and coding, 3D design, community oriented projects, and more.



Students are taught foundational skills as well as procedural and conceptual understanding with a variety of real-world and mathematical problems.



The STEM studio is where science and architecture come to life! From solar ovens to basic soldering, students explore making and inventing with their own hands!



Through engineering design, students learn to imagine, plan, create, and improve the function and process of their projects.



Students have a blast using critical thinking skills while learning about life science, earth, and space science and physical science through a Biblical worldview.

STEM Overview

Grades K-5

Our Lower School students learn about science by doing science. Hands-on activities, carefully crafted experiments, and regular visits to our STEM studio and TECH lab expose students to a variety of scientific processes including coding, robotics, engineering, and design process.

Grades 6-8

STEM in the Middle School is full of exploration, excitement and “aha” moments.  Our hands-on program encourages classroom engagement, collaboration, and deep comprehension. As students engage in activities in computer science, engineering, coding, and robotics, they see a range of paths and possibilities they can look forward to in High School and beyond.

Grades 9-12

At the high school level, students have several advanced STEM options in tandem with our Science & Math Departments.   Throughout their time at Providence students are challenged through engineering, coding, and robotics in courses like Computer Science Discoveries, AP Computer Science Principles, Intro to Engineering,  and AP mathematics courses.

Robotics Clubs

First Lego League Jr.

It’s never too early to discover STEMFIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®.

Guided by adult coaches and FIRST® Core Values, students build models using LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 and create Show Me posters to present what they learned. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through a real-world challenge – to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination.

First Lego League

Students in Grades 4-8 are engaged in hands-on STEM experiences, they build confidence, grow their knowledge and develop habits of learning. Students are encouraged to try, fail, and try again, while connecting STEM concepts to real-world examples.

Galaxy Builders

First Lego League Tech Challenge

It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (up to 15 team members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.
