STEM Education

The Tangi STREAMliner

Welcome to Tangipahoa Parish’s new STREAM bus. The STREAMliner was brought to life through grant funding and donations from sponsors. It is a fully functioning STREAM Lab. 

The STREAMliner is in the final stages of design and will be ready to Engage, Empower, and Connect with schools, parents, and our community.



Science.  Technology.  Reading.  Engineering.  Art.  Mathematics.

What is STREAM?
STREAM stands for science, technology, reading, engineering, art, and math. STREAM education is a student-centered, inquiry-based interdisciplinary approach to learning. Embedding STREAM learning into a curriculum allows our students to learn vital skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and innovation, along with essential technology skill sets.

What are some examples of STREAM activities?
STREAM activities are hands-on and student led. The teacher acts as the facilitator of learning in a STEAM-centered classroom.  Students are given a task or a problem to solve. Students then work together to discuss and test various solutions to a problem.


Special Recognitions:

Many thanks to Mr. Bill Ford for donating the school bus for this project. The vision of the STREAMliner bus was brought to life by the Carpentry Class of Independence High Magnet School. We are so very thankful for their craftmanship and work ethic. The inside of the bus is shaping up beautifully. (pictures to come!)
