David Padilla,Creative Learning Systems Facilitator Dwight Middle School STEM Academy, South San ISD –

I was born in a time when personal computers, cell phones, and electric vehicles weren’t even dreamed of. The way the world operates today has changed dramatically since then, and who knows what the future will hold? To prepare for this, we must provide our children with a strong STEM/STEAM education. Everything taught in these programs gives students the tools they’ll need in not only their day to day lives, but in their future careers as well. Our children today are our leaders of tomorrow, and exposure to that type of learning is an essential pathway to success. To quote Malcom X : “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

Paula Heileman,Executive Board Member Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation, Santa Fe ISD –

STEM is an excellent program to allow students to learn more about not only science, technology, engineering, and math but also to apply this knowledge. Students are given the opportunity to use these skills to develop their creative and critical thinking in school but and to better prepare them for their future careers.

Anna Lopez, STEM Academy Coordinator Dwight Middle School, South San ISD –

E. Lawrence Act out your Dreams and make them come True. STEM and/or STEAM is important for students to Act or Dream what has never been dreamed before.

Jimmy Aldape,ECHS Counselor Southside Early College High School, Southside ISD –

An important aspect of STREAM education is having students understand the connection between the content knowledge (math, ELA, social studies, and science) that they are gaining in their classrooms and real-world problems. STREAM also promotes the use of “soft” skills such as collaboration, communication, problem-solving, teamwork, time management, and critical thinking. Through the use of the EDP (Engineering Design Process), students learn the steps involved in solving problems and learn that failure is a HUGE part of learning.

Amy Scott, STREAM Lab Teacher Beutel Elementary School, Brazosport ISD –

I love introducing the Engineering Design Process in the STREAM Lab. Some of the most amazing learning moments happen in students’ failures. Students develop grit to keep trying and understand that learning truly involves making mistakes. It is amazing to watch students change their mindset from “I can’t” to “How can I improve this so it works.”

Pamela Horton, STREAM Lab Teacher Bess Brannen Elementary School, Brazosport ISD –

STEM/STREAM is important because it gives the students a chance to experience learning in a project based form. This provides a more hands on, fun, and engaging way of learning. STEM/STEAM also provides real world applications that could apply to future career choices!

Kelsey Harvey, STEM/CTE Teacher Santa Fe ISD –

As a woman in the technology field, STEM and STEAM are crucial for the future of our children and our society. The exposure that STEM/STEAM gives to our youth allows them a different critical thinking process than is available in conventional curriculum. Getting involved in this curriculum as a child will kickstart them into a future that is needed in our workforce. In addition to that exposure, many of the STEM/STEAM programs present the information to them in an entertaining platform thus instilling a love in their hearts.
