STEAM Program

The GUSD Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) Innovation Program is a multidisciplinary project-based approach to engaging discovery, exploration, problem-solving and effective collaboration.

Each grade-level appropriate project is intentionally infused with multiple standards from across the STEAM disciplines from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core Math and LA standards, the California Arts standards, as well as the California Computer Science Standards.

Many of our projects have been designed with additional layers of complexity and rigor in close collaboration with the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy (DPEA). This partnership continues to empower our program to push exciting boundaries in our elementary schools, and is forming the trajectory from rich primary STEAM education to future passion and STEAM career exploration. All projects are deployed at all 9 schools in the Goleta Union School District.
