Global Impact STEM Academy values project-based learning (PBL) as the most authentic means of assessment. Students are asked to solve real world issues, work through multiple levels of pedagogy, and present this information to peers and community members. Teachers work to design effective projects that integrate critical, complex reasoning to serve a purpose in students' daily lives. The completion of these projects and, more importantly, the reflection process, demonstrate a student's ability in content knowledge and skills.

Expo Nights are the major showcase of student learning taking place at Global Impact STEM Academy. Occurring each semester, expo nights are designed to give students an authentic audience who offer constructive criticism to their projects completed in their coursework. Each expo night is themed around a concept which drives the entire event. We encourage all parents, family, and community members to attend.
