On October 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Isaac STEAM students from Morris K. Udall Middle School went on a field trip to view the documentary “Underwater Dreams.”
“Underwater Dreams” features past Maryvale students who participated and won a highly competitive robotics competition in Southern California. The documentary is now being made into a full-length feature film called, “Spare Parts.”
“The hope is that this documentary will ignite a spark within more of our students to pursue interests in math, science, engineering and robotics,” said Dr. Mario Ventura, superintendent of Isaac School District.
In 2004, a group of Carl Hayden students won a competitive robotics competition and beat out other students from prestigious colleges such as M.I.T.
Isaac School District has three STEAM Magnet Schools that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math and how it applies to real world applications. The goal is to cultivate a new generation of students who are interested in pursuing these fields of interest.
Isaac believes it is imperative to ensure our students are ready to be competitive in the 21st century job market.
Isaac School District serves approximately 7,500 students in the Maryvale community and is located in the West Phoenix Metropolitan area. Isaac has 11 schools total, 2 middles schools, 1 K-8th grade, 7 Elementary Schools and 1 Preschool.
Isaac is a one hundred percent Title 1 school district and provides free and reduced lunch to all of our students. Our population is approximately 98 percent Hispanic. For more information, please contact Emily Broome, communication specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (602) 455-6771.
