design workshops at Raytheon.

We are looking at education in exciting new ways in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

AP Biology

More and more these STEM disciplines—traditionally taught in schools as separate fields of study, but rarely separate in the real world—are being taught in an integrated, interdisciplinary way that more closely resembles their interaction in universities, research labs, and the business world.

Each year upper school students design and build a robot for the
FIRST Tech Challenge

Lincoln is committed to underscoring the integration and interdisciplinary nature of these fields.  This integration fosters the qualities that are necessary for all students in the 21st century:

  • the ability to be problem-solvers, innovators, inventors,
  • to work collaboratively and with creativity,
  • to think logically,
  • to communicate in compelling ways,
  • to have a sense of responsibility to the world.
