• Robert L. Craig STEAM Team

    The Robert L. Craig STEAM Team provides an opportunity for students who are interested in STEAM fields to have hands-on experience in those areas through competitions run by the South Bergen Jointure Commission in engineering, robotics, and drone flying. The team is made up of twenty students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students on the team are required to complete applications explaining areas of interest and reasons that they would be good additions to the team. They must maintain a B average in all subjects; if they fall below that average a meeting with the team mentor and school principal is required in order to stay on the team. The team meets before school on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Skills that are reinforced throughout the year through the team are problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, team work, and persistence.
