Full “STEAM” Ahead
Academy High School in Plano – the district’s first school of choice – is charging full “STEAM” ahead with its avant-garde interdisciplinary structure that actively incorporates art into the STEM disciplines of science, tech, engineering, and math. Instead of traditional classrooms, students collaborate in large open areas with moveable furniture. Using labs, idea rooms, and presentation spaces, each grade level focuses on one single, all-encompassing project at a time for up to half a semester. Check out this story about the art of STEAM, and prepare to have your mind blown.
