Welcome to our new online course series!

STEM Skool Presents: World of Science™ features core science and engineering, global studies and world history presented in an innovative unit study format.

Join us this fall as we study plant biology, animal science and agriculture while traveling back in time to Mesopotamia, home to one of the world's earliest and most vibrant ancient civilizations.

We'll explore the Tigris and Euphrates as we learn about the importance of rivers and water systems in developing agricultural economies.

Then, we'll return to modern times to become agricultural engineers! We'll use the engineering design process to solve food production problems surrounding population growth.
