Woodlawn Middle STEAM and Academic Magnet Program
Woodlawn Middle has a diverse STEAM and Academic magnet program that serves grades 6 through 8. Our magnet program empowers students by giving them the skills to be successful in an information-based and highly technological society. WMM builds critical thinkers, collaborators, and innovators through the exploration of digital media, robotics, coding and engineering design. Our program offers smaller class sizes and an accelerated curriculum for the core class: Math, Science, Social studies, and English. Magnet students also have the opportunity to choose from several high school credit classes. Our STEM focus is integrated in all classes through (PBLs) project-based learning. We offer STEM electives such as Robotics, StemPathways, Engineering Design, Digital Design, Computing Everywhere, and Computer Science. Students experience innovation in their STEM electives where they complete lego challenges, code robots, operate drones, makerbots and spheros, code and use animation. Students explore various STEM career options and participate in field trips and learning experiences that bring STEM to life! We have over 20 clubs that students can choose from such as Robotics, Engineering, Gardening & Agriculture, Digital Design, Planet /Space Exploration, and STEM Careers. We also have several community partners, such as LSU, Southern University, and Baton Rouge Community College that invite our students to tour their programs and participate in STEM events. If our program is a fit for your child, please apply for magnet online at ebrmagnet.org.
