"PORTALS TO STEAM" SUBJECT SERIES

DR. MARY MCLEOD BETHUNE MIDDLE SCHOOL

Los Angeles Unified School District - LAUSD South, Summer 2021 - Current Work In Progress

Our "Portals to STEAM" mural series opens a whole new perspective to each subject, transforming six of the campus stairways to an engaging Portal to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. 

Each mural is designed to make the viewer feel like they can step into the subjects, illustrating the lessons with a narrative of applied peer learning. Our mission is to excite imagination and critical thought as they walk between classes to further engage passion for learning.


Interior Main Campus Stairway Mural Six Panel Series. The Mathematics and Science murals are installed on campus. Project page updated as murals are completed. Please visit our social media pages to stay connected with our work in progress!

"Mathematics Portal"

This mural highlights the passion for Mathematics as a team of students work together to design, build, and launch a rocket into space. The design incorporates a strong architectural frame, ornate with tessellated patterns. Beyond the archway is an artistic arrangement and story telling of mathematic principals and their application. Included are the golden mean, algebraic equations pertaining to rocketry, physics and several geometry references. Alongside the mathematic imagery the viewer follows an inspiring story with a cast of students building a rocket, beginning with the planning phase, construction, launch preparation and blast off.
