Irene Lerner came to SDJA as a science teacher and has grown the GMLS science and STEM programs into one of the most beloved aspects of the GMLS student experience.
One of the exciting programs that Mrs. Lerner has brought to SDJA is the “Mission Innovation” STEM competition. SDJA’s Mission Innovation brings together grades 3-6 students from both public and independent schools in our area to engage in fun and challenging science, technology and engineering challenges. Over the course of the year, students work in teams to hone their scientific knowledge, to design and build, and to present their findings at exciting interscholastic events. The 17-18 Mission Innovation season is ready to launch!
