What is STEAM?

The STEM to STEAM movement has been growing over the past several years and is proving to meet the needs of a 21st century economy. STEM alone misses several key components that many employers, educators, and parents have voiced as critical for our children to thrive in the present and rapidly approaching future.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

What is a STEAM Carnival?

The STEAM that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math meets the festivities of a carnival. It’s a massive science, technology, engineering, art, math, and music fair. At the NEISD’s STEAM Carnival, you will experience hands-on activities, performances, demonstrations, and a variety of interactive exhibits that all feature STEAM concepts. These innovative and exciting exhibits are created by groups of students throughout the district. Come see the future our youth are creating! At the STEAM Carnival, you can also enjoy hands-on activities and cutting edge technology hosted by our Community Partners. Join us in the Roosevelt High School Courtyard to create art with lights, make music as you walk, and play life size games! There are hundreds of booths to experience and food and novelties are available for purchase. The NEISD STEAM Carnival is an all ages event that is open to the public. Admission is free. Things are about to get creative!! Come be dazzled!!!
