We are all about STEAM+!

STEAM+ is an interdisciplinary approach that allows McAllen ISD students to make connections in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as they engage in curricular and extracurricular real-world learning experiences.

The Plus is an extra layer integrated into the curriculum that goes beyond academics. It focuses on the interpersonal and intrapersonal skills and attitudes that students must develop in order to be lifelong learners. The Plus equips students to develop the best version of themselves as they prepare to be productive citizens in a global society.

STEAM+ allows McAllen ISD students to:

  • Question and explore as a scientist

  • Design and produce as a technologist

  • Participate in the design process to build as an engineer

  • Express themselves as an artist

  • Solve complex and unfamiliar problems as a mathematician
