The Wilson School District is extremely proud of our ISTEM (integrated science, technology, engineering, and math) program. Through this program, students entering their freshman year at Wilson High School have the option to enroll in an integrated block of courses focusing on these areas. At the culmination of their school year, students will present a major project that they have completed in groups and with the assistance of an outside mentor.
On Thursday, Sept. 13, from 5:30-6:15 pm, the Wilson ISTEM faculty and administration will be hosting an ISTEM Mentor Open House to kick off the mentor program for the 2018-2019 school year.
This year, we anticipate having 30 groups of students who will work with a mentor on a project throughout the school year. The mentors provide guidance throughout the entire process– allowing students to hear from an expert in the STEM field. The Open House will be held in the ISTEM Lab, located in the Lower House on the High School campus. ANYONE interested in serving as a mentor for our students is invited to attend.
