Beehive Science and Technology Academy

School Type: Charter
Designation: Platinum

Beehive Science and Technology Academy (BSTA) is a STEM-focused, charter school which uses iPads and other technology aided education tools. We serve around 300 students in grades 6 through 12. BSTA offers courses and extended day activities that promote STEM, including computer science and advanced math courses, STEM expo projects and other STEM related activities. BSTA also prepares students for prestigious STEM competitions such as Robotics, Lego Robotics, MathCounts, Math Matters and state science fairs. College prep courses are offered with particular emphasis on STEM related industries so that Beehive students graduate ready to move on to their next level of education. The main objective is to develop students who possess critical thinking skills, mathematical reasoning, and complex problem-solving abilities, and who will be equipped for college matriculation and work-ready careers in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Project-based learning is at the center of BSTA’s STEM learning and certification programs, leading to increased student engagement, collaborative work ethic, and real-world culminating projects that showcase students’ understanding and acquisition of academic vocabulary, math conceptual mastery, problem-solving/reasoning skills, and computational fluency-automaticity. Every student in the school is issued an iPad that are used extensively in each classroom, as well as for major projects. Each year, all students participate in the Utah STEM Expo hosted by BSTA. iPads are particularly used for this event as students have to design a project, film it, put it on BSTA’s YouTube channel, and then demonstrate it in front of thousands of visitors.
