Marathon Oil to Fund SmartLab at Texas City High School

This fall, Texas City High School will have a brand new SmartLab thanks to the generosity of Marathon Oil and their support of local education. The Marathon SmartLab complements the Blocker Middle School SmartLab funded by Valero Energy Corporation in 2013. Together, they provide Texas City ISD students with an opportunity to explore hand-on, project-based STEM education throughout their secondary school career.


Texas City ISD provides a national model for corporate support of local K-12 education. The Texas City ISD Foundation works closely with local business and community leaders in support of their schools. For their corporate partners, these STEM labs provide valuable publicity and help build a pipeline of future high school graduates with the skills to contribute to their organizations.

Creative Learning Systems is proud of its role in supporting this extraordinary public/private partnership. Learn more here.

St. Joe’s Catholic School Featured in Center of Excellence Magazine

Catholic School Center of Excellence magazine’s cover story this month features SmartLab partner school St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Waconia, Minnesota. The article focuses on St. Joe’s innovative C-STEM initiative where student-directed, project-based STEM education is fully-integrated with traditional Catholic values and learning. According to school principal Bruce Richards, “Our mission is to inspire all learners to become the person God intends. We do this by integrating Catholic payers, virtues and service with 21st-century learning”.

Like many of our parochial school partners, St. Joe’s views STEM as critical for Catholic schools to remain educationally vital. We implemented the SmartLab at St. Joe’s one year ago and the St. Joe’s community has responded enthusiastically; enrollment is up for the first time in 10 years and 96% of St. Joe’s parent agreed that C-STEM had enhanced their child’s education.
