About McClintock STEM Elementary

Welcome to McClintock STEM Elementary, a school dedicated to providing a cutting-edge educational experience for our students. Established in August 2015, our institution is proud to carry the name of a remarkable scientist whose pioneering work has left an indelible mark on the world of genetics and scientific discovery.

A Legacy of Excellence

Our school takes its name from the esteemed Barbara McClintock, an American Nobel laureate cytogeneticist. Dr. McClintock's groundbreaking contributions to the field of genetics led to the discovery of genetic transposition, commonly known as "jumping genes" in maize. Her revolutionary research not only reshaped our understanding of genetics but also had far-reaching implications in the realms of cancer research, agriculture, and cell physiology.

Dr. McClintock's achievements are a testament to her exceptional dedication and unwavering commitment to scientific inquiry. She stands as an inspiration, not only for budding scientists but for all who believe in the power of knowledge and relentless pursuit of truth.

Honoring a Trailblazer

Dr. Barbara McClintock's legacy is commemorated here at McClintock STEM Elementary, and we are honored to carry her name forward. As the sole woman to ever receive an unshared Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, her accomplishments serve as a beacon of inspiration for our students, reminding them that with dedication and determination, they too can achieve greatness.
