Elementary STEM in La Porte ISD

In La Porte ISD, we believe strongly that education grounded in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is the key to a student’s future success in an ever-changing, global economy. In keeping with our mission of success for each student in La Porte ISD, and as part of a community integrally connected to STEM-related jobs in industry, maritime, oil & gas, health science, and aerospace, our project aims to equip our earliest learners with the skills they will need to succeed and excel in a future workforce through STEM Academies at each elementary campus.

STEM education opens doors for each student through interdisciplinary learning rooted in critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. By developing both innovative and practical skills through varied problem-solving applications, we will prepare each student to be resilient and ready for any challenge they will face in a future global society.
