3 Garland ISD hosted its third-annual STEAMposium in April, culminating months of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics instruction. This one-of-a-kind event featured campus winners from across the district as they faced off against one another in challenges ranging from parachutes to catapults to roller coasters to chess. An exciting awards ceremony not only crowned districtwide champions but also included dancing, drill teams and a keynote by Dr. Lodge McCammon.
