LaGrange Highlands
School District 106

Demand for STEAM Education increases amongst students

Challenge: Highlands district identified a need to expand their STEAM offerings and were exploring options that would provide students with dynamic and hands-on STEAM projects. The school district was introduced to STEAM-X by a parent with students in the district, who had previously participated in TinkRworks STEAM programs.

Solution: After meeting with TinkRworks and getting introduced to the multi-disciplinary STEAM-X curriculum, the Highlands leadership team decided to move forward with TinkRworks. They saw that the philosophy, methodology, and overall pedagogy of the STEAM-X curriculum aligned to the needs of the district. The district implemented TinkRdrone for eighth grade and TinkRbot for fifth grade.
