MC2 STEM High School

School is in Session at the Science Center

Did you know that there’s a high school at Great Lakes Science Center? It’s the MC2 STEM High School,  the result of an innovative partnership between the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and the Science Center. Focusing on STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math), the school furthers the mission of both organizations and makes science education come alive.

Designed as a project-based learning environment, the MC2 STEM High School exposes students to the design and implementation practices scientists and engineers use. Students spend their days creating, exploring and discovering as they learn to become innovators, logical thinkers and inventors. The school’s unique curriculum incorporates Science Center resources, and students get to experience Science Center exhibits and programs that turn scientific theory into reality.

School is in session year-round, with students working for 10 weeks, taking a three-week break and then repeating that pattern for four 10-week terms throughout the year.

We invite you to see what the STEM High School students are up to and view the custom-built classrooms housed on the Science Center’s ground level.
