What can our STEAM Express do? It can: 


· Light a fire of passion in children for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).

· Incorporate STEAM activities and functions within the community.

· Increase parental involvement.

· Make STEAM activities accessible to everyone!


How are we going to accomplish this?


 

· Because parents can’t always bring their children to STEAM programs, we can bring STEAM to them!

· By partnering with community organizations, LPPS can target specific groups and communities within our parish.

· Through teaming up with schools, we can offer an experience for our students to get them interested and invested in all things STEAM.

· Community events, such as the fair and local festivals also provide an opportunity to incorporate STEAM into different communities from our district.

 

Why is this Important?


 

· Community and Parental involvement have been proven to help students in many ways.  Students with parental involvement:

  • Experience academic gains in Reading and Math
  • Have fewer behavior problems
  • Lower dropout rate
  • Increase participation in academic programs once parents know about them
  • BONUS FACT:  Family participation in education is twice as predictive of student academic success as socioeconomic status.

· Texas A&M found that students in all demographics participating in STEM programs out-performed those not participating in STEM programs.
