What STEAM Education Is & Isn’t
What STEAM education is: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics
STEAM education is a teaching philosophy based on creativity and innovation. It teaches students to integrate skills from different subject areas to help develop innovative solutions to real-world problems.
STEAM education is designed to prepare students for success in college, in career, and as responsible citizens. STEAM education develops students’ creative, analytical, cooperative, communication and problem-solving skills –all essential to success in today’s world, no matter what students’ interests or career goals are.
What STEAM isn’t:
STEAM education is not highly specialized education for an elite group of students. STEAM serves all students.
STEAM education is not only for those interested in science, engineering, technology, arts or math. STEAM education goes beyond training scientist, engineers and technology professionals. It helps all students develop and apply essential skills through a rigorous and diverse curriculum, a college-ready and work-ready culture, and personalized learning opportunities. These skills will serve students in all areas of their future education and careers.
STEAM education is not one-size-fits-all. STEAM is highly personalized education that caters to students’ individual learning styles and interests through individual student and faculty interaction. STEAM students have the opportunity to build upon their strengths and learn in ways that are most meaningful and beneficial to them.
All students benefit from a strong STEAM infrastructure.
