​​Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (STEAM)

STEM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content nd skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Along with content knowledge, a strong STEM program establishes student behaviors, which include engagement in inquiry, logical reasoning, collaboration, and investigation. The goal of STEM education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st century workforce. 


two stduents looking through a microscope STEAM fuses Arts and creativity with STEM to engage the whole child and foster high achievement in all areas by blending the arts and sciences. Both STEM and STEAM employ the artistic process and scientific method relying on exploration of ideas and possibilities. Both require high student engagement in exploring creative and critical thinking, which supports collaborative learning. STEAM compliments 21st century skills, particularly the “4 C’s” of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.
