FAQ

What is STEAM?

STEAM education is in high demand and takes STEM learning experiences to the next level. While STEM and STEAM both focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the “A” for arts is what makes all the difference, not just in terms of visual art and aesthetics. The “A” is also meant to incorporate language arts, music, social studies, and the physical arts. It focuses on the application of science, with the goal for those experiencing it to feel free to wonder, critique, inquire, and innovate. STEAM allows us to dream big and make our ideas come to life!
