• STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math education.
    We believe :
    • The skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success
    • These fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively
    • STEAM is an interdisciplinary and applied approach that is coupled with hands-on, problem-based learning
    • Arts  ≠ Crafts
    • Arts = Design & Creativity
    • STEAM engages both hemispheres of the brain with open-ended creative activities
    • Arts and STEM are not at odds. Just ask astronaut Mae Jemison!
