Approximately 125 students in the Fort Worth ISD Middle School Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program will participate in the 2017 STEAM Carnival on Monday, Oct. 23. STEAM Carnival is a modern reinvention of the traveling midway, designed to inspire the next generation of inventors with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Fort Worth ISD students will be part of an estimated 4,000 students and 300 educators from the Fort Worth area who will attend the three-day STEAM Carnival, which runs October 23 – 25. STEAM targets students in fourth through eighth grades.

Students will participate in hands-on and collaborative learning at the STEAM Carnival. The carnival is divided into zones where students can experience bands, arts, robots, and other activities that involve Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. The STEAM Carnival uses career choices such as scientist, engineer, programmer and artist as the focal point to drive student curiosity.

The STEAM Carnival began in DFW in 2016 as a way to showcase student creations, engage students from both rural and urban districts in the STEAM environment, and provide a field-trip experience that immerses students in hands-on learning throughout the event.

The original STEAM Carnival was introduced by Two Bit Circus out of Los Angeles, California. Employees of ESC Region 11 began a partnership with them to bring the experience to students in the DFW area and it is now one of the largest STEAM events in the state.
