Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)

Welcome to Young Women’s Leadership Academy at Arnold! YWLA is a T-STEM Designated Campus which means we demonstrate all expectations of the State of Texas for a STEM focused campus.

STEM encompasses four academic disciplines - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. STEM guides our vision of ensuring all 6-12 YWLA students graduate with critical thinking skills. YWLA students must have access to a world-class STEM education necessary to compete in an innovation-driven economy.

STEM provides students with hands-on, real-world projects guided by the engineering design process. It equips students with 21st century skills, preparing future generations of our young women to thrive in STEM-related college majors and STEM careers.

Our role is to continuously plan with our community partners and school personnel to implement curriculum and provide STEM focused opportunities for our students both in the classroom and beyond.
