STEM at Appleby

Programming in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics has become increasingly important for student success. The lab, which is equipped with Appleby’s wireless network, projectors and whiteboard space, provides an
exceptional teaching and learning environment in the area of STEM, and is a great example of the school’s commitment to leading the way in this area of study.

Playing an important role in the future of STEM at Appleby is the Foundation for Excellence in STEM endowment fund. Established through the generosity of Mark and Clare Schmehl (parents of Audrey ’21 and Connor ’19), the fund supports future growth for the school in this critical area. 

“Many of the best jobs are being created in the STEM field,” shared Mark, who has witnessed the Canadian technology
growth first-hand as a portfolio manager at Fidelity Investments. “That’s where the future employment opportunities
and demands are, so it’s important that students acquire this skill set.”

In support of the new fund, a number of Appleby parents came together on May 24 to learn more about the future of STEM at Appleby.

“For some students, coding is their version of going outside to shoot hoops,” said Clare. “So, it was really exciting to meet other parents who are just as enthusiastic about supporting the growth of Appleby’s STEM programming.”

“We believe in giving to the future,” added Mark. “So the goal of the endowment fund is to generate future resources for the school to enrich the student learning experience and demonstrate how interesting STEM is. Whether that’s through new drill
presses, artificial intelligence machines, a school trip to the Google campus, you name it. There are so many possibilities.”

CHECK OUT THE WISH LIST OF EQUIPMENT THAT FACULTY ARE HOPING TO INTRODUCE TO THEIR CLASSES OVER THE NEXT YEAR:
• VEX Robotics upgrades
• Artificial Intelligence System
