One thing that students and parents can look forward to this year is information on LCMHS being named a Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (T-STEM) Academy. Representatives from UT Tyler – LCM’s partner in this program, will be on hand to give an overview of the benefits to T-STEM and the opportunities it will provide LCM students.

UT Tyler will also bring their Mobile STEM Lab and Kidz Science Safari so that students of all ages can participate in STEM learning activities, to get an idea of what is offered through the Academy.
