STEAM education is an approach that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking.
The STEAM approach is certainly not an easy task, but the benefits to students and the entire school community are tremendous. Students and teachers engaged in STEAM education make more real-life connections so that school is not a place where you go to learn but instead becomes the entire experience of learning itself. We are always learning, always growing, always experimenting. School doesn’t have to be a place, but rather a frame of mind that uses the Arts as a lever to explosive growth, social-emotional connections, and the foundation for the innovators of tomorrow…today!
In this area, you’ll find tips, resources and best practices for using STEAM education in your classroom or school. Be sure to also check out our semi-annual online conference and our Arts Integration and STEAM Curriculum Supplement. Both are designed to keep you on the cutting edge while reducing time spent in planning and searching for resources.
