For the past two summers, we have been excited to offer a week-long summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) camp to all rising 7th and 8th grade CISD students. The RED & BLACK Interactive Institute, a half-day camp, has been held at R.J. Lee Elementary - Coppell ISD's (and the state of Texas') first net zero elementary school.
RED & BLACK Interactive Institute's hands-on approach to learning seeks to inspire students in STEAM fields of study by exposing them to a variety of exciting, real-world applications. Each day covers an engaging new subject and hands-on project with the curriculum designed and facilitated by our corporate partners. Past corporate partners include: American Airlines, Balfour Beatty, Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Irving, Bottle Rocket, DTCC, General Motors, The Movie Institute, SED and UT Southwestern Medical Center
The Coppell Education Foundation provides the direction and oversight of the RED & BLACK Interactive Institute with support from CISD. The projects and teaching principals are intended to compliment CISD's excellent math and science curriculum.
