United Way brings STEM in the Schoolyard to O.W. Holmes


Students at Oliver W. Holmes Humanities/Communications Academy were inspired to pursue careers in STEM with the help of a special guest: Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman.

United Way, Mr. Cooper, Texas Instruments and, of course, Number 8 himself brought STEM in the Schoolyard to the campus. United Way hosts the annual event to immerse students in science, technology, engineering and math activities to inspire them to think outside the box. More than 150 volunteers led engaging sessions for 300 students.
