US Ignite Lauds Lafayette's "STEAM" Team

US Ignite's summer newsletter leads off with a bit about Lafayette's STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Education initiatives.
In Lafayette, the city's children will begin a journey focused not only on traditional STEM but rather STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) education with the benefit of the 3D animation and modeling tools available through the leadership of the Louisiana Immersive Technology Enterprise (LITE), the public school superintendent, Lafayette Utility Services, University of Louisiana Lafayette, and FiberCorps. Lafayette has also completed its first US Ignite brainstorming event to foster the creation of applications for a “Living Lab for Health Innovations” program. 
Nice.
