STEAM Gifted & Talented Academy

The STEAM Gifted and Talented Academy is a new and exciting program housed exclusively at Landry Elementary School designed to serve CFBISD’s Gifted and Talented (GT) students.  STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.

  • The goal is to combine the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer.

  • To arm students with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful innovators in the 21st century.

  • To teach relevant, in-demand skills for an ever evolving world.

  • Students practice skills, develop explanations, solve novel problems, use creativity, and engage in critique and evaluation.

  • Empowers teachers to employ project-based learning that crosses all 5 disciplines (science, technology, engineering, arts, math).

  • Fosters an inclusive learning environment where all students are able to engage and contribute.

  • Through this holistic approach, students are able to exercise both sides of their brain at once.

  • Practice skills that can be used throughout life to help students get through tough times and take advantage of opportunities whenever they appear.

  • Students are taught how to learn, how to ask questions, how to experiment, and how to create.
