Longs Creek’s Enhanced Cowboy STEAM Program Outfits Students For Texas Sized Learning Opportunities

Heather Carroll went above and beyond with the STEAM program she designed for her K-5 students. Not only did she incorporate the typical STEAM materials, but she also introduced audio and video equipment to enhance the presentation of the projects. The outcome was truly remarkable.

Her students produced outstanding PowerPoint presentations, followed by green screen recordings of themselves discussing their projects. Two of her former fourth-grade students, who are now fifth-graders, Thomas Otte and Trevor Herring, created an incredible presentation similar to a TED talk about the solar system. Even adults could learn a thing or two from these budding astrophysicists!

We are genuinely grateful to Heather Carroll for pushing these young minds to explore beyond the K-5 Curriculum and taking learning to a new level.
