Klein, TX – Learning is taking another leap forward inside the STEAM Express thanks to a $10,000 technology donation from HP.

HP, a long-standing supporter of the Klein ISD Education Foundation, donated two brand-new Sprout Pro by HP learning stations along with an HP 3D Capture Stage for use in the STEAM Express mobile classroom last month.

According to HP, Sprout Pro by HP is an engaging “immersive computing platform” unlike any other technology – built with a Windows 10 PC, two large work areas, hi-res cameras, Touch Mat and 2D and 3D scanning capabilities. It prepares students for next-gen careers with blended reality and STEAM-focused tools that encourage hands-on, active learning, collaboration, and creativity.

“Using tactile input on a computer will allow our students to bring their physical world into the digital world, and you see their eyes light up when they can combine those worlds,” said Bill Nebeker, STEAM Express program coordinator. “The students of Klein ISD are very fortunate to have access to this technology.”

Donated by the Klein ISD Education Foundation to the district for the students of the Klein ISD, the STEAM Express mobile classroom travels the district year-round to teach students about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.
