– STEAM: Students Create and Innovate
11:30 a.m. (a box lunch will be served)
Enjoy a box lunch as members of Latin’s engineering, technology, and visual arts faculties discuss the School’s commitment to providing experiential learning opportunities for our students. See firsthand how Latin’s multidisciplinary STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) curriculum teaches students to be critical thinkers as they collaborate to create, design and build innovative products and artworks.
Long before educators tagged the terms “STEM” and “STEAM,” Latin was a national leader in teaching engineering to prep school students as a component of our curriculum, which is traditional by design yet innovative in implementation.
Target Audience: Prospective grade 6-12 students and parents of prospective kindergarten – grade 12 students
Please note that admissions applications are due no later than January 15, 2016.

Trinity Episcopal School is the only K-8 independent school in Uptown Charlotte. Their passionate and innovative faculty are committed to creating scholars by redefining academic rigor using a workshop approach, inspiring a responsibility for students’ own learning, and promoting their curiosity in the classroom and the world around them. As an urban school, Trinity has the distinct advantage of an extended campus that includes Center City destinations such as ImaginOn, Discovery Place, and the Mint Museum.
The Trinity school community nurtures spirituality through the reason, acceptance, and service found within the Episcopal tradition. Trinity embraces the richness of diversity by encouraging students to be socially-conscious and civically-engaged ambassadors of grace, honor and respect in the world. They instill honor through high expectations for responsibility, respect, kindness and integrity, all found in the Trinity Honor Code.
