Welcome to La Joya’s 2018-2019 STEM Elementary School
 
STEM
 
 
 

Elementary School at STEM is where innate curiosity

and STEM infused learning meet.

 
 

STEM provides a rigorous well-rounded education with a special focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Employers say that many of today’s young students are not prepared for the jobs of the future because they lack the technical skills and discipline required in the competitive 21st century economy.

 

Evangelina Garza STEM Elementary is a learning environment centered on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). It is a project based school where students learn how the sciences work together and blend with reading, writing and math to bring success to collaborative projects.

 

While a typical elementary school might have a computer lab used by the entire student body, Evangelina Garza STEM Elementary provides students with one-to-one technology beginning at the end of October. Every student will have access to technology devices which may be in the form of an iPad®, Chromebook® or kindle®. Students will be engaged in weekly STEM challenges as well as a unit called Project Lead the Way. Keep visiting our website for more information and publications of our students hard at work.
