Bethel Park School District 21st Century Learning/STEAM Initiatives

 The Bethel Park School District is committed to developing our students into 21st Century Learners, equipping them with the skills they will need to not only be successful, but to also be difference makers, in this rapidly-changing world. Today’s students may very well be preparing themselves for careers that do not currently exist!

Bethel Park School District students have access to a variety of technology—as students in grades 7-12 have Chromebooks that they can not only use during the school day, but also take home with them at night and on weekends during the school year to conduct research and complete assignments. Students in grades 2-6 have access to Chromebooks during the school day via classroom sets; and students in grades K-1 have access to tablet technology in their classrooms.

     The  stories below will give you an idea of some of the many 21st Century Learning/STEAM activities our students are doing district-wide.
