What is STEAM 

S.T.E.A.M. education is in high demand and takes S.T.E.M. learning experiences to the next level. While S.T.E.M. and S.T.E.A.M. 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.  S.T.E.A.M allows us to dream big and make our ideas come to life!
