Participating Schools

The BioSTEAM Curriculum Tool is a free online resource for any student or educator to access. To participate in the hands-on workshops, the BioSTEAM International Youth Exchange or the BioSTEAM Design Challenge contact us to register your school.

Below are the BioSTEAM projects and the list of participating schools.  Each teacher integrates the BioSTEAM project into their curriculum and subject focus. It is exciting to see how each teachers' approach is uniquely adapted and original in design.

School mission: The Taos Integrated School of the Arts, in partnership with parents and community, provides K-8 students in the Taos Municipal School District with the opportunity to reach their maximum potential through a standards-based, multicultural, thematic, and arts-integrated curriculum.

Taos is a multicultural community steeped in artistic tradition.
