Irving ISD has been selected to take part in Wolf Trap Early Childhood STEM Learning Though the Arts. The program infuses Science, Technology, Engineering & Math into classrooms at Good Elementary School using arts based learning approaches. The program is free to the district, as it is sponsored by Northrop Grumman. The goal of the one-week residency program is to provide professional development for classroom teachers while helping children learn through active participation in arts-infused experiences that are grounded in proven developmentally appropriate best practices.
Irving ISD is a leader in STEM education for high school students. Wolf Trap brings the same creative thinking models used in secondary education that will enable kindergarteners to go beyond traditional teaching and learning activities.
