LIVINGSTON – The STEAM Express has a busy schedule for February, with eight scheduled visits to parish schools.

The Livingston Parish school system converted a school bus into a mobile classroom equipped with Wi-Fi, touch-screen monitors and laptops, and hands-on, interactive modules to help students learn concepts in a variety of subjects. 

Schools are incorporating the STEAM Express in their regular math, science and literacy night events, according to Nikki Lavergne, instructional technology facilitator.

Teachers who have completed the district’s workshop are able to customize the learning activities for the subject and age group of their choice.

Feb. 11, Seventh Ward Elementary.
