Sam’s Club donated $252,000 to support STEAM education in Dallas ISD on Jan. 7, with funds going to three schools and the STEM Department.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics and points to a focus on providing experiences in each discipline as they relate to real-world careers.
Sam’s Club donated $100,000 to the Innovation, Design, Entrepreneurship Academy; $60,000 each to Solar Preparatory for Girls and Solar Preparatory for Boys; and $32,000 to the district’s STEM Department. The presentation of the funds was during the grand-opening celebration of the new Sam’s Club Dallas Tech office in downtown.
The three schools are among Personalized Learning campuses that require students to submit applications to attend. Learn about these and the many other speciality programs and schools available here. Applications are being accepted now through Jan. 31.
