• About STEAM

    The Haslett Elementary STEAM class, integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics to guide student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Our goal is to help students take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. Students at Murphy and Ralya attend STEAM class for 60 minutes, once every 4 days.
