Special to The Highlander
Marble Falls ISD has introduced STEAM Academy for the 2018/19 school year. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

The first program consists of approximately 75 6th-grade students, with the program coordinated out of Spicewood Elementary School. 

Each year school officials plan to add another grade of students until the program includes 8th grade students.  The goal of the STEAM Academy is "to offer integrated learning of the core academics through the lens of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math." 

Coordinators believe that learning should be engaging and cross-curricular while focusing on real-world learning opportunities. 

The daily schedule will offer combined academic classes, art, music theater, pe, technology, Project Lead the Way, as well as a specific PBL (problem based learning) class.
