East Canton High School

  
East Canton High School has earned a STEM designation from the Ohio Department of Education STEM Committee. This honor has only been awarded to 1.6% of schools across the state. ECHS is proud to be the first Stark County High School recognized with this distinction. 

The STEM program which was implemented in 2012 has since expanded through community and business partnerships with Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems, Pero Farms, Edhesive/Amazon, Pointful Education, and the Young Entrepreneur Grant Symposium to name a few.

These partnerships allow us to provide additional opportunities for staff and students as well as allowing us to share our lessons with other school districts. East Canton High School is on the forefront of leading-edge instructional practices. In addition to STEM, ECHS has implemented virtual reality, artificial intelligence, agricultural engineering, and computer science resources from Amazon into the curriculum.

ECHS Designated STEM School

EAST CANTON, Ohio (May 3, 2019) East Canton High School has earned a STEM designation by the Ohio STEM committee.  This honor has only been awarded to 1.6% of schools across Ohio. East Canton High School becomes the first Stark County High School to be recognized with this distinction.

The STEM designation was recommended by a panel of policymakers, agency directors, and business leaders.  The panel stated, “East Canton’s STEM implementation grew from individual courses that focused on problem-based learning to a school-wide focus and culture of innovation.  Since implementation, 100% of teachers have been trained in problem-based learning, which enhances the STEM practices at East Canton High.”

The first STEM class at East Canton High School was basically financed by the three classroom teachers, and today through grants and district and business support, that district has been able to build a “makerspace” for students that holds both low tech and high tech equipment and materials from software to robotics to CNC machining to drones to 3-D printers.

East Canton High School’s STEM program has expanded through partnerships with Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems, Pero Farms, Edhesive/Amazon, Pointful Education, and the Young Entrepreneur Grant Symposium to name a few. These partnerships allow us to provide additional opportunities for staff and students as well as allowing us to share our lessons with other school districts. East Canton High School is on the forefront of leading-edge instructional practices. In addition to STEM, ECHS has implemented virtual reality, artificial intelligence, agricultural engineering, and computer science resources from Amazon into the curriculum.

Superintendent Kevin Finefrock stated, “East Canton teachers are state-wide leaders in

the areas of innovation and problem-based learning. Their dedication to students, the community, and the teaching profession is remarkable. The collective dedication to implement research-based instructional practices is rooted from the desire to prepare our students to be critical thinkers, collaborators, and problem-solvers.”

“We are proud to welcome these new members of the Ohio STEM Learning Network as they join Ohio’s diverse, and fast-growing STEM community,” said Aimee Kennedy, Senior Vice-President of Education, STEM Learning and Philanthropy at Battelle. “Each new school broadens our perspective and grows the collective impact of this state’s strong STEM ecosystem.”

The Ohio STEM Committee is supported by the Ohio Department of Education.
