Volunteer information

Participants develop those difficult to teach skills…team-work and self-confidence while effectively staying engaged and learning in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) culture.

GISD is cultivating a culture of “Students and Teachers Engaging Active Minds” by providing prekindergarten through 12th grade STEAM challenges that align with the district's Strategic Plan to support student-centered critical thinking, creativity, innovation, problem solving, collaboration and communication.

The challenges culminate with the GISD STEAMposium, an interactive full-day event at the Curtis Culwell Center with a keynote speaker and award ceremony.

STEAM Framework

The STEAM educational framework is for all disciplines and types of learners with the goal of being more engaging and naturally successful. Students can participate in four different ways: engineering challenges, VEX Robotics, Maker Creator Challenges, and the Science Fair.

EngineeringEngineering

Engineering design challenges engage learners in hands-on, authentic challenges and coordinates with state and national STEM standards.

roboticsVEX Robotics

The ultimate game-based STEM activity for middle and high school students. STEAMletes use the VEX design o build innovative robots designed to score points in competitive matches and skills challenges.
