Math, Science & Technology
(MST) Magnet Program

Magnet Information Meeting

Join us at Watson MST for an informative evening on Thursday, December 3, at 7:00pm. This will be an opportunity to visit our campus, meet our staff, and learn more about the unique aspects of Watson MST.

Watson Technology Center for Math and Science offers an education unlike any other in Garland ISD. Access to innovative technology and a focus on math and science prepare students to be future leaders in emerging career fields. Project-Based Learning simulates the real world, with students working together to solve problems. Examples include: Water conservation, Sustainable good and services, and Cybersafety.

Community connections also help make experiences more meaningful and extend instruction beyond the classroom. Students regularly collaborate with college students, CEOs, city officials and more. 

Named an Apple Distinguished Program, Watson provides true 21st-century environments. Students use MacBooks, iPads, iPods, robots, Arduinos, and Makey Makeys daily. The technology is used in projects such as; iBook Author, iMovie, GarageBand, Audacity, blogging and podcasting creations. Because of wireless Internet throughout the campus, learning takes place in hallways, outdoors, or wherever inspiration strikes.

Other features that make Watson MST special:

  • Interactive weather station for student meteorologists to produce daily newscasts
