Extracurricular activities are key to a well rounded STEM students. Below are some of the opportunities that Phoenix STEM academy students can participate in. Even though these extracurricular activities are  not required they are encouraged for all STEM students.

VEX Robotics

Each year, an engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students,

with guidance from their teachers and mentors, use the VEX Robotics Design

System to build innovative robots designed to score the most points possible in qualification matches, elimination matches and Skills Challenges. McMichael STEM students not only have the abililty to participate in the Robotics I and II Honors courses, but also they can go on to compete against other schools in the VEX Robotics competition. In addition to having a great time and building amazing robots, students learn to work within a team environment.
