The Silvestri STEAM Academy!

Silvestri Jr. High School is a 1-to-1 Chromebook academy in which every student receives a Chromebook to use in school and at home through the Nevada Ready 21 Grant.

 

Silvestri was highlighted in PITSCO Education's February 2018 STEM Article.
 

"It was an ambitious request. Educator John Walz was asked in 2016 to build a STEAM program for Silvestri Junior High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. The vision was multifaceted: expose students to a wide range of subjects to hook their interest while also exploring key areas in greater depth – and at the same time keep the program flexible to accommodate changes that might be needed. Walz had experience to draw from, having both led a middle school educational technology program and worked in a position helping elementary and middle school teachers integrate technology in their classrooms."
