The New Jersey School Boards Association is hosting “Are You I-STEAM Ready?” at Mount Olive High School on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Over the last several years, the Mount Olive School District has developed new I-STEAM initiatives including STEAM camps, digital learning with a focus on real-world problem solving, robotics, and other student-focused STEAM programs.

The program will begin with Mount Olive’s STEAM journey told through a panel discussion comprised of district stakeholders. Following the panel discussion, participants will tour the facilities including the Mill, the School of Rock, the B-STEAM Lab, and the MATE Rover.

The program will include a breakout session by the New Jersey School Boards Association and the U.S. Army designed to demonstrate the power of communication and collaboration, both critical elements of STEAM learning environments, and life in general.

The day will conclude with next steps, the role of business in STEAM careers, and strategies attendees can bring back to their school or district.

This program is offered at no-cost and is sponsored by the Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey. It is open to all N.J. public school leaders and district staff interested in learning more about I-STEAM education.
