My first impression of STEM was this it was just going to be another boring program. But, to my surprise, I got a decent challenge. The teachers were supportive and really changed my life. The program helped me develop high level work habits that made me even more productive. I am pleased with the outcome of STEM and happy with the friends that I’ve made. I look forward to the rest of my eight grade year!

My first impression of the STEM program was that it was just a side thing; another club, as one might say. However, in 7th grade, when I started the STEM program, it was completely different from what I expected it to be. It was a program that encouraged friendly behavior and a better classroom setup, and it gave us many tools to use to further our learning experience. An example of this would be the lab, where we did experiments and got help on our science fair projects if we needed it. Another example would be the tablets, which we used to gather information or to test, make a website, and such. This couldn’t happen with any other program, because they simply didn’t have the resources to do it. Overall, STEM was not what I expected it to be, and so I hope this next year of STEM will give us an even better community and to give us even more tools to make our education as great as possible.

My first impression of research was that it was going to be challenging but also a great class for me. It was challenging but it also helped me become smarter. I also thought that you had to be very organized but I was wrong you have be ten times more organized than I thought. You also have to be prepared for anything you have to have a great mind set too. Being organized was the least thing on my mind because I knew the work would be ten times harder. There was homework every night and projects every week. They didn’t really trouble me but when they did I had a great teach to help me. She also game hard work to make us smarter and to get into the best schools. Overall I was very excited and very ready for this class and the outcome was very rewarding.
My first impression was that it was just another hard class. Although it is very rigor, it was very organized, making the class just a bit easier, while still being a challenge. The class pushes you to work harder and develop great working habits. The class may be hard but the outcome is very rewarding.

My first impression of the S.T.E.M. program is it’s a big family. The teachers are encouraging and help the students. They also challenge the class with critical questions. My classmates are very supportive. The program is very organized. The classes are very rigorous and challenging. I have the best friends in the world. And best of all, you have a fun time while learning.

My first impression of the first day was amazing so far. The teachers in STEM are wonderful and I can tell it will be a great year being in there classes. I am hoping that my classes will be both challenging and fun so I may excel in in each and every subject. My homeroom teacher turned out even better than I hoped she would. My connections seem amazing already and are just as important and challenging as my other classes are. The accelerated algebra class has already impressed me beyond measure.

My first impression of STEM was very different my other experiences. It was slightly more advanced than I had expected, but not all that difficult. There was a great community filled with more to learn in math and science. STEM offered new ways of learning in technology. I had lots of fun meeting new people and enjoying learning new things at a new level. STEM was not what I had expected and can’t wait to learn even more in STEM.

My first impression of the STEM program was that it was just your average program for PC students. But as I have gone through the program, I have realized that there more to it than that. On my first day of STEM, I thought I could just barely pass through and still be thought of as a PC student. But I was wrong. STEM provides the proper learning environment and learning tools, because they want you to do your absolute best. But there is even MORE to STEM. STEM is a great learning establishment where you can have enough to work on your own, and do team evaluations to better your teamwork abilities, in the case of you getting a job that involves a lot of teamwork. STEM is more than a school program. STEM is a FAMILY school program.

MMS (Memorial Middle School) is the best behaved middle school in Rockdale County, in my opinion. I have enjoyed all of my classes. I love all of the teachers at the school as well. Especially, the way they teach and give great directions as for what to do. Along with that I have made new friends and reunited with old friends. Since I am a STEM student, I am looking at lots of educational field trips ahead. The year is looking great and it’s only my second day!

The S.T.E.M. program gives us the opportunity to work in an environment that allows us to experience new ideas. These first two days, I was able to see how S.T.E.M. has evolved from last year to this year. Unlike last year, this year we are able to participate in hands on work, where different individuals are able to come together to solve an ongoing problem. This program, unlike others, lets us interact with the environment and use science to our advantage to solve a problem. Overall, S.T.E.M. has shaped all of us in to the wonderful and intelligent people we are today, and I can’t wait to see what S.T.E.M. has in store for us later this year!

My first impression from the S.T.E.M Program is that we are a large community. We help the community and the people that live in it. The classwork is also very rigorous, but it will pay off. We will also go on educational field trips throughout the year. I am hoping that this school year is a great year and we get more opportunities to learn cool stuff.
