STEAM Labs are becoming reality

STEAM supplies are now making their way to Medina Valley ISD elementary schools. 

We’re so excited about the creation of STEAM Labs in Medina Valley. We’re more excited about the opportunities it opens for our students.

Why STEAM?
STEAM learning is very important because these five disciplines are used in everyday activities. They promote problem solving, and creative and analytical thinking. Many of the jobs that effect our economy include STEAM subjects. Accounting, architecture, medical research, and environmental studies all involve science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEAM occupations have grown in the last ten years three times faster than non-STEAM occupations and STEAM occupations have been growing by 10% since 2014. Non-STEAM occupations are only growing at a national average of 5-8%. (NASA 2014)

For this reason, among others, it is never too early to begin introducing STEAM learning to your child. Each discipline of STEAM helps your child grow and navigate through everyday challenges. 🐾🧡
