Gypsum schools work together to create GypSTEAM programming
September 7, 2017
GYPSUM — Eagle County Schools launched its inaugural GypSTEAM program with the new school year.
It's GypSTEAM because the program will focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math.
Gypsum schools are working together to create programs and are partnering with multiple community organizations, including the town of Gypsum, the Aspen Art Museum, Walking Mountains Science Center, YouthPower365, Vail Resorts, Colorado Mountain College and Vail Health.
"This is the beginning of a sustained, multi-year project designed to elevate the quality and focus of instruction in Gypsum schools," said Dr. Eric Olsen, principal at Red Hill Elementary School in Gypsum. "We want to prepare the next generation of workers, leaders and entrepreneurs of Eagle County by engaging them in the most current and rigorous STEAM-based education possible."
