STEM Career Academy at REL

STEM Academy Mission

Lee High School hosts the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Career Academy for Goose Creek CISD, which has earned a Texas Education Agency T-STEM Designation. The career academy is ideal for students desiring a career in STEM industries. Much like in college, students take at least one engineering class per year that empowers them to step into the role of an engineer, adopt a problem-solving mindset, and make the leap from dreamers to doers.

Student Experiences

Students even have an opportunity to design new products that can change the world. Business partners such as ExxonMobil, Covestro, Samson and the city of Baytown provide opportunities to learn about the engineering world, and Lee College offers dual credit classes for the students to graduate with college credits. The STEM Academy also offers students the opportunity to acquire industry based certifications in Microsoft Office and FAA Drone Pilot’s License. Students enjoy a well-rounded education with site-based industry field trips, robotics competitions, guest speakers, internships, job shadowing and college visits.

Project Lead the Way (PLTW):

The PLTW Engineering courses engage students in compelling, real-world challenges that help them become better collaborators and thinkers. Students take from this program in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives.
