A new way to think about STEAM in Highland Park ISD
STEAM: (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) has the power to change student’s lives. With the work of the Moody Innovation Institute, these subjects will be better integrated to enhance learning by allowing students to solve complex real-world problems from a variety of perspectives.

Thanks to the Moody Foundation, the Moody Innovation Institute has been providing innovative STEAM education to students in grades K-8 since 2017.  STEAM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that integrates these subjects to foster critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and innovation. By encouraging hands-on, project-based learning, STEAM education aims to equip students with standards-based practical skills and theoretical knowledge, preparing them for real-world challenges and careers in various fields. STEAM encourages curiosity, collaboration, and adaptability, nurturing well-rounded individuals capable of tackling complex issues and contributing to advancements in science, technology, art, and engineering. STEAM education emphasizes the interconnectedness of these disciplines, fostering a holistic and dynamic learning experience – along with a lot of fun!
